Okay, here is the situation:

A friend of mines family own an old Les Paul-copy of the brand diamond. It's a bit beat up but otherwise it's a nice guitar. It is in desperate need of new elektronics though.

Now, I wonder since my friend is not too keen on spending that much cash, what are some decent, versitile humbuckers that won't drive a poor student bankrupt after buying. I couldn't find specific answers enough when searching old threads.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
