I play mostly hair and power metal and am going to change the pickups on my les paul. I have been thinking about EMG's(Zakk Wylde set) or Dimarzio super distortion.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Sounds to me like you could do with a Bareknuckle set, probably Holy Divers or VHIIs

I really like EMGs and they're not toooo expensive.

Dimarzio Evolutions if you're into shred. You're into power metal so I'd suggest them.

edit : Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but don't buy any pickups without trying them out first.

Fender Stratocaster in Red.

It's all I need.
