Hey guys.

I have a question about putting some new pickups in my guitar. I own this guitar (Gibson Faded SG Special) and I was wondering what kind of pickups I should get for it. I play heavy rock/metal. At first I was looking at some EMG's, but then Seymour Duncan released their "Blackouts". Would these be a good choice for pickups? Do you have any other advice?

Thank you very much for you time.

I'd say go with the EMGs, from what I hear, the Blackouts are nothing special.

Will they sound fine with the Mahogany body? Cause I have heard wood effects the pickup sound. (Sorry I'm a noob at this)

When it comes to EMG cheap and expensive guitars will sound almost alike...

Really? Is there a good passive pickup that you suggest for metal? I was looking at the SH-8 Invaders. Are those any good?

You could look at Dimarzio DeActivators, they're passive but they're pretty much the same sort of sound.
