so... im trying to upgrade my sound but since a dont have much money to buy a new guitar, im gonna install new pups on my guitar...

im looking for passive pickups, especially seymour duncans and dimarzios...

i play mostly metal and metalcore and i was think of getting a seymour duncan jb pup for the bridge and a 59' for the neck cause ive seen it on many lamb of god guitars... but what about the duncan distortion and the dimebuckers and the invaders?? HEEELP PLEASE!

I'd suggest the Duncan Distortion. It's like the JB in that it has the screaming highs for solos, but it's also alot more tight and.. well.. 'metal' sounding to my ears.

go and read the duncan site and the pick up descriptions, I have just orderd a sh-2 and a sh-5 for my epi lp and the site helped me out alot, and if you can, go to your local guitar store and talk with a tech.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus-Top, SH-2 and SH-5
Ibanez GRX20
Baron Acoustic
Peavey Valveking 112
Roland Cube 15
Dunlop Crybaby From Hell
Dunlop GCB-95 Crybaby
Boss MT-2 Metal Zone
Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter
Boss BF-3 Flanger

dimarzio x2n and super distortion is a good combo.

Evolutions and D-Activators rule too.

as far as Seymour Duncan stuff, hot rails, full shred, jazz, jb, and distortion are all fantastic. you can't really lose with new pickups as long as they're from a good company. check out Lace, Rockfeild, and Bare Knuckle too. they're not mass-produced either (well rockfeild is a little)

Id Get A custom and a 59.

The custom is a cross between a JB and an Invader

the dime bucker is really trebly...
great for pinch harmonics though


i had a dean with a dimebucker on it at one point, i hated the thing lol they just seemed like EMG's with dying batteries to me
