Hey Im buying an Epiphone Standard Plus Top and i am going to put new pickups in it and I am wonder which ones would be better the Seymor Duncan Alnico pro II pickups or the Gibson 57' Humbuckers.

I play Blues, Classic/Hard Rock ( Led Zeppelin, GNR, SRV, Cream, Jimi Hendrix etc.) and am Looking for a pickup that is versatile enough to have a good clean tone for blues and has enough punch to play harder stuff like GNR.

Any comments on which one would be better would be appreciated.

Get the Gibson 500T in the bridge and the 490 in the neck.
Neck is nice and warm but not muddy, and the bridge is punchy.
I got them in my Explorer Pro, and they cover from blues and southern-rock to metal very nicely.
500T+490 win.
I suggest not getting Burstbuckers.
The Seymour Duncan JB (bridge) and Jazz (neck) would be a good combo too. Very popular.
