Ok so I Am going to buy new pickups. im looking for a harsh to brutal metal sound and i was think ing about emg 81/85 or seymour duncan invaders . what should i get?
so you want active pickups? the emgs are good for metal but not a great clean sound...
People are gonna have different opinions. Probably best to listen to try them out.
If you can't do that, listen to some soundclips, or at least look what pickups your favourite bands use if you're trying to get their sound. Won't really be a good comparison either way, but at least it's your opinion not someone else's.

I also was considering a dimebucker pickup
