right for my s470, im looking for a set of humbuckers ( i filled the single coil in).
i like to play things like
the black dahlia murder.
atreyu.
alexisonfire.

pretty much any metalcore.
i love the emg81 but the 85's pretty crap imo, but if anyones got any suggestions maybe from, dimarzio seymour duncan etc. that would be greatly appreciated.
can you suggest some ?

before we go any further: upgrade your amp, you won't notice the tonal difference enough through a modelling amp to justify the £200 odd cash outlay, save it and get yourself a good amp.

well the guitar has none at the moment i'd rather get some decent pickups first so i can actualy play the thing, and then new amp later.

My original point still stands: put the stocks back in and put the money into a good amp; a crap guitar through a good amp will sound better than a wonderful guitar through a crap amp.

I agree with Zaphod, even though i suspect he's only trying to get you to buy his amp

If you still have the stocks just put them back, if you don't then get some Swinesheads...probably an X-Bucker for the bridge and a Runaway for the neck in your case.

If you want to pay even less look at Irongear.

I don't know as much about them, but maybe a Steamhammer in the bridge and a Rolling mill in the neck....both manufacturers will be able to advise you a lot better than us lot though.

ah...in that case look into bare knuckles, you're in England too so they'll be reasonably priced and they are awesome, go to the bare knuckle forum on their website for some recommendations.
