i like the humbuckers, but would you suggest different ones??

Gibson SG Special

out of a mesa triple rect

price has no limit

i play mostly metal, but i dont want typical high distortion pickups, i want something with diversity so it has to be able to handle some good cleans

i want something that can deliver/handle/whatever a chunky crushing tone tho

quaaaaality metal pickups


i dont know tooooo much about pickups, but i've been playing for over 5 years

i'm pretty excruciatingly pleased with my tone so im nervous about different pickups, but then again i could be missing out on some much better pickups


just seeing if anyone here can help me out.

'08 Ibanez S5470 Prestige
Gibson SG Special - discontinued teal finish
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier
4x12 Mesa Oversized Slanted Cab
BOSS TU-2
iSP Decimator

I'm not sure but Dimarzios might work well
Signature? What's a signature?

Look into the High Output GFS Rails. Those should be perfect for the crunchy style you're going for.

gibson dirty fingers? theyre suposed to have nice cleans

Just because its $40 dollars, doesnt mean it isnt good. But whatever, that was what came to my mind first. Ive heard nothing but great things about GFS, especially their Rails.

Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and Jazz in the neck. You could probably sell your current pick-ups and end up making a profit from the whole thing.

The JB and Jazz are VERY versatile pick-ups, ranging from great cleans to Blues to all-out Metal tones. That's exactly why I want a set in my next guitar.

^I don't think either of those really fits what he needs.

If money is no object, then getting a random off the shelf pickup is just foolish.

I would probably go to www.highorderpickups.com and get 2 customized pickups. You could also check out the pickups at www.rockmonkeyguitars.com.

That being said, if you're happy with your tone, then I wouldn't mess with it.

gibson pickups are some of the best, but if you want metal look into seymour duncans, duncan JBs are good versitle pickups but they are kinda weak for certain metal. EMGs are amazing metal pickups but are a bit sterile sounding. EMG 81/60 set might be a good bet. Thats what James Hetfield uses and he plays cleans.

Gibson '57 Classic in the neck, '57 Classic Plus or Angus Young Signature in the bridge.

do you think a '57 will have enough gain for metal?, yea itd be great in the neck but for the bridge id suggest a Seymour Duncan Distortion or Invader or a Gibson Iommi.

57s are lower gain. I SUGGEST Bare Knuckle Nailbombs personally. That or Dimarzio Super Distortions. DO NOT GET EMGS they are only good for really heavy metal, and thats about all they can do. Get the Dimarzios and you will not be disapointed

bridge = Dimarzio Norton
neck = Duncan 59

the norton is real nice in mahogany bodies. It sounds great distorted and clean.
the 59 is all around great.
