Ok. i have a gibson sg and want to get some new pickups for it. i play classic rock stuff like led zeppelin, jimi hendrix, pink floyd, ac/dc, and guns n roses.

what pickups should i look into that aren't extremely expensive or that are typically used for extreme death metal or something.

thanks

Ummm. What amp is that?

I'd suggest just saving up for a new amp.

New pickups won't make much of a difference if your amp isn't up to par.

Truthfully anything more powerful than the stock pickups (assuming they are 490's) will put you more toward the extreme. I have a Crate amp I like, but your amp may be why you don't like the pickups. Nothing wrong with changing pickups but I recommend before you do take your guitar and try it through a tube combo. You may be pleasantly surprised.

No you don't, because you're loking at changing pickups. People generally only change pickups becasue they don't like their sound, the pickups in your SG are pretty good so they're unlikely to be the root of your tone problems, which leads back to the amp.

You don't like your amp, you just don't want to believe that the amp is the problem.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
