Hey all, Ive been looking at pickups for quite a while now, I did wana get some for my Ibanez because it just wasnt cutting though live.. well It kinda was but it was all treble.. damn EMG's!

Anyways Ive switched to using my Epi Les Paul now cus it just sounds sooooo much better and solo's just sound great, like a wall of sound , only thing is the bridge pickup on the guitar has a slight tendancy to get muddy with power chords and im having to set the gain on my valveking head to max to make up for the low output of the pickups (I do a fair bit of legato and stuff plus gotta be searing leads!)..

Sooo, im kinda thinking about changing the stock Epi pickup to a 498t Hot Alcino I just want sumthing with a little bit more output that wont get muddy with low chords like the stock Epi can..

Does anyone have any experience with these pickups/ think they would be right for my situation?

Thanks, chris

You can do better for your money, a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 would fit the bill I think.
