Ok so i have my Epi SG, I think it has a mahogany body.
I want to get an Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro for the neck, is this a good idea?
Also need advice for the bridge, looking for metalish sound, I've been told an EMG 81 or a dimarzio?

i have both the seymour duncan alnico pro II in my epi les paul, the neck position pickup can give you a really sweet lead but the bridge pickup wouldnt really suit metal i dont think more suited to classic rock n bluesstuff in my opinion so think you should go for the emg probably be better for you.

if you get the emg 81 spend the extra 20 bucks to get the coil tap.... that'd sound cool.

Mixing an EMG 81 with a passive pickup could be a hassle, not just the installation but the difference in output. That may be worth thinking about.

DiMarzio make some great passive pickups, I personally love the Steve's Special for the bridge.

thanks guys, probably dimarzio for me, which one though?
+ i know the alnico pro II is good for classic rock and stuff, which i want but i need a metal pickup for the bridge which would go well together

A good metal pickup: Either an invader or an evoltion bridge, if you're going exclusively DiMarzio. Alnico pro II is a good choice for neck.

Didn't Kerry King use MGs at some point?

I think he just endorses them because he likes sacks of money

I'm planning on keeping this guitar for a long time though as I'll probably go through amps trying to find the perfect one
