Hey.
I recently purchased a Schecter C-1 guitar. it's a nice guitar but the stock Duncan Designed pick-ups aren't doing it for me. i'm looking to upgrade but am not sure what to get. I mostly play metal and i'm trying to get a good sounding distortion.
I'd like to get a tone kind of like Lamb of God's guitrist Mark Morton.
anyway...i know nothing about what pick-ups are good or bad, so any help is appreciated
Thanks

Look for active pick-ups, like EMG's, which has got a very heavy sound and gives you more powerful sound with less noise!

Mark Morton uses passive Seymour Duncans. Are there any other bands/style you play other than metal?

The most important part of getting that tone is your amp. You need a good modern style amp with lots of high end and good compression. Peavy and mesa are both good choices.

As far as pickups go, you need something with good high end, tight bass, and scooped mids. EMG does do a good job with this but I'd go for a good PAF over an EMG. I make pickups with Neodymium which do a very good job at hitting the high note while keeping very high output.

So what type of amp do you have anyway???
Not taking any online orders.

Then you shouldn't even be thinking about pickups at this point. Upgrade the amp first, and you'll maybe realize that you don't even need new pickups then. Budget?

Old Traynors are actually quite nice...Some of them are exact copies of Fender Bassmans and Marshall JTM's and stuff. What model is yours?

I mean, it's not really the amp for what you're looking for...but it's probably a good amp.
