I imagine these are good for Sabbath, and other forms of metal/rock? Are they worth putting in a guitar, or is there a better alternative for classic metal/classic rock?
I think they are a bit overpriced (like all Gibson gear) check out Dimarzio or Seymour Duncan as well.

The Tony Iommi pickups, can do most metal exceptionally well, but in my opinion they aren't the most versatile pickups, thats why I went for a set of SD 59's for my SG, they are cheaper and more versatile, but for a sludgey sound the Iommis are great.

Dimrzio Breeds.

Mr. Seagull, I checked out your DiMarzio Breeds on MF, and there's a bunch of different options to choose from...are they just colours?


Plus, I am seeing quite a few reviews saying it will make my Les Paul sound like a Strat, which I do not want. Are you sure Breeds are good, or should I look at something else?
I have them on my epiphone iommi sg, they're really good for metal/hard rock. The pickups are quite 'hot', but you can get some more mellower sounds if u roll down down the volume slightly. I would say they are quite good for classic rock if that's what you're looking for, but the only problem is that the cleans aren't fantastic; not bad either either, just kind of... mediocre.

Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 + Seymour Duncan SH-14 Custom 5.

Some of the reviews say the SH-14 Custom 5 has a nice Sabbath sound. I think I'll consider this. Not sure about the other one though...

GFS Vintage '59's or Mean 90's.

Tony is a huge influence of mine, and I've never gotten a better Sabbath sound than I got from P90's or PAF's
I have to say I love these pups and wish they were better priced because I have a couple guitars I would love to toss them in. I am trying scratch togehter $400.00 because I found an Epi Tony Iommi SG for that price. It's stamped a 2nd but I could not find a thing wrong with it. I plugged it in and luckily the place was empty and the guy said I could crank it and I did. Just for comparison I plugged in a Gibson SG in the same amp on the same settings and the Iommi one just blew it away. I know it's the pups those things scream.
