Hello, i currently have and ESP AX-50 with the ESP LH-150 pickup setup. I want to get new pickups for it. I have decided that i want either the ESP LH-300 set or the EMG 81/85 set. I have a friend wsho has the Alexi-200 which has 1 LH-300 pickup which sounds pretty good low and distored. So i want to know in your opionon what one is better. Also is the LH-300 set cheaper?

ESP LH-300 are **** pickups compared to EMG 81/85. The ESP pickups are pickups that ESP placed into their relatively low end models.

You need a new amp before you change any pickups. An okay amp with **** pickups will sound decent but good pickups with a **** amp will still sound like ****.

What amp are you using at the moment?

The reason why your friend's alexi might sound good is because he has a relatively nice amp. What's he using?

well at the moment i am using a Randall RX-15 with a ZOOM G1x effects pedal. Sometimes i use a Behringer Ultra Metal Pedal. So you would reconmend the 81/85? and i only herd him at school on my music teachers line 6 . So thats probaly why it sounded so good.
