And is there any questions you want answering?!
You want two different EMG's, like 81/89, 85/60, and so forth. They are deffenatly built for metal sounds, and they have pretty good cleans, too.
the pickups won't distort by themselves. although they do have an onboard preamp, they don't have any on board effects. although many people think these are the best for metal and such, they arent'. i own an EMG 81 and i use it for pop/punk, metal, and even some cleans. cleans arent the best. but EMG's go well with anything basically distorted, especially tube amps.

The questions people ask here makes me wonder how the TS's dress themselves in the morning and can shower without drowning...
