I have an Epi LP Custom that i am having the Zakk 81/85 set put in right now with the18v mod. i also have a another guitar with them already install if you like metal the EMG's will be great. there is a big differnece between the stock pickups and EMG's, so if you are thinking about the EMG's and play metal they are well worth it.

what type of music do you play?
for metal i like the seymour duncan invaders. i have not tried emgs so i have no honest opinion
for my opinion, i love the gibson burstbucker pro pickups. they are great for vintage and modern sound, but for metal they might not suit you, but if you play other stuff primarily then i STRONGLY suggest the burstbucker pros. they are expensive but if you don't mind slightly used then ebay can help you out for about $70 each.

i got my neck pickup for 71 bucks shipped on ebay. it came in the orignal case and was lightly used but it sounds great and that's all i care about.

Would Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro be good for Alternative Rock and stuff like GnR (I know Slash uses them)
