currently, i use ****ty stock pick-ups and i need something with a little more kick.
currently i play a les paul special II, but im going to get either an epiphone les paul, an LTD Viper G-400 or an epiphone SG all in the $400-$500 price range.
do you have any suggestions for good pick-ups so that i can play both death metal and jazz and have it sound good?

knowing the guitar and whether it has single coils or humbuckers would help everyone give you advice.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I'd get both an upgrade of guitar and pickups. Have a look at the Epiphone LP standards, and then look for an upgrade of pickups to go with -
The rig:
Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)
Backup: Vintage AV1
Newcastle United
Duncan Jazz in the neck. it can do soft cleans to metal tones. in the bidge, try Custom 5 or Custom.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC
