I agree with RATM, Go for the G400, but its still a dodgy choice for metal

neither can do Metal out of the box, but with some EMGs, the G-400 would be ur best bet.

Really, really no.

SGs (even the cheaper Epi ones) can handle metal just fine as they are (I'm not syaing they're the best, but they're not awful either) - and no, you do not need EMGs. Granted, you do need to upgrade the pickups to something really if you want a truly good tone, but this mentality so many people seem to have that EMGs are the holy grail of metal pickups and they'll make any guitar sound good/better is just plain wrong. Same with the Dimebuckers too. For almost all guitars, there are more, better 'metal suitable' options than EMGs, if you'd just care to do your research.

As far as an SG goes, if you're playing mostly metal but want the option to use it for other genres too, something like a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the neck and an Invader in the Bridge would work well, or switch them the other way around if you fancied it a touch smoother. My personal inclination though would be something like a Gibson Burstbucker 2 in the neck and a Seymour Duncan JB Model in the bridge, get more flexibility out of the instrument.

No body needs EMGs, but why get something that isn't the best? ^.^

Anyways, the G-310 is a bolt-on, and doesn't come close to the G-400. I love my G-400, but I wouldn't particularily recommend it for death metal, alot of death metal tunes down enough the 24.75" scale might be too short. But, for hardcore punk, crust punk, grindcore and black metal, it's superb.

Exactly, so why get EMGs?

JB= for death metal. death metal pickups should be very very high output, so probably active ones. I'd go with EMG81/85, u can't get much "t3h brootalZZZ"-er than that for a pickup. so it'd be good for death metal but def not mid-gain stuff, and the 81/85s have aLOT of unwanted noise.
