Duncan or Dimarzio you need to check out the web pages to see what you.

bill lawrence l-500xl like dime only a few places have them, or dimebucker, or a set of EMG's if you have the money

Most of the tone will be from your amp, so I'd just best point that out.

Anyways, Epi G400's are great guitars that are made all the better for a pup change. Look into either some DiMarzio's (I really like the PAF Pro's) or if you have the cash, look into some amazing Bareknuckle pups. Any of those are great for your metal action, but I'm particularly fond of the Warpig's, the ceramic ones.

get a S. Duncan JB for the bridge and a '59 for the neck... they handle metal very nicely and they're versatile as well

Pickups aren't going to make any difference to the sound - if you don't like the tone then it's the amp's fault, not the guitar's.

yeah i'm startin' to get tired of people thinkin' changin' their pickups is gonna make a vast difference..cuz it won't.it will make a difference but only about the same as turnin' the treble knob a notch

Aye. G400's though, I'm sure you will agree, are guitars which react really well to a pickup change. Got yourself a keeper for a while when you've got nice pups in them.
