Depends on what amp you have, what you feel is lacking from your tone and what you want to add to it. Naming bands doesn't really help much, you need to describe your tone currently and then explain how you want to change it.

Having said that you've got a V7 and V8 so I know what they sound like already

New amp, no question - you can't even begin to think about pickups until that's sorted. That's like buying tyres before you have a car.

EMG 81 85 no question

no, not for malmsteen or blues for that matter. they are active and arent good for cleans/light distortion. you might want a set of single coils for malmsteen and blues. malmsteen uses dimarzio YJM's, but yeah, get a new amp first.

+1... apart from anything, you need to decide what you want your new pickups to do to your new amp's voicing and gain level.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

ditto

Get a new amp first. Sure hey, you might even like the tone of those pickups through the new amp, where as if you get the pups in first you'll never know what it would have sounded like (unless you uninstall them).
