I really wanna put some new pickups in a Epiphone Les Paul that is routed for three humbuckers. I kind of want it to be versitile because I play just about everything from metal to jazz. I was wondering what you guys would think the best combo would be.

Thanks for the help!

...I don't think you'll find THE combo you're looking for until you convince people to elaborate a little on their choices, because the stuff I'm seing here is completely erratic.

If you're looking for a good value upgrade (e.g you don't want to spend +£200 on a new set of pups), look into IronGear and Tonerider. I know first hand that IronGear can give SD and DiMarzio a run for their money at a fraction of their price, and from what I hear Tonerider are the same kind of idea. Seeing as you're in the States Tonerider would probably be better for you, as IronGear are a pretty small UK company (though if you e-mail Keith at Axetec then he'll happily arrange overseas shipping for you) while Tonerider are based across the Pond. One might also argue that Toneriders' scatter-winding trumps IronGears' machine-winding.

I would suggest a Rocksong set for Bridge and Neck and perhaps, for the sake of variety, a Rebel 90 in the Middle. Mind on however that the Rebel 90 is actually a Humbucker-sized single coil P90, so this would actually change your setup to H-S-H (you might feel the urge to swap the bridge Rocksong and Rebel 90, resulting in S-H-H, but I would say that H-S-H is the better option in terms of versitality, and it's worth keeping in mind that the Rocksong will be specially wound for the Bridge position), a different kind of idea. However, if versitality and general all-round tone at a sensible price is what you're after, you have your option.

Or the GFS equivalent of all of the above if you're on a budget.
This thread is going to be closed because you have to post your pickup questions in the pickup thread. I'm not saying whether i agree or disagree, i'm just saying that's what's going to happen.
