I might be looking for some new pickups for my Epi LP standard after I get my new amp ( Epi blues custom ). The stock ones could sound a bit better I think, they arnt bad but I want something a bit thicker and have more of a crunch to them. I also need them to be able to do lead guitar for blues rock, and sort of hendrix-y stuff. Any suggestions?

Your best bet are Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz Pups.
Most versatile pups on the market, the RR3 im getting has them, and there like God is singing when i play them.
Good from anything to Jazz To Heavy Metal (not death or black metal though)

Over-rated and generic.

Custom 5 bridge, Pearly Gates or 59 neck is a much better match for what the TS wants.
Actually called Mark!

I hate getting in a thread after you, cause all I get to do is +1

The SD Custom 5 Bridge will give you the crunch you want and I would use the 59 in the neck for a thick lead tone (maybe its just my ear, but the PG seemed more trebly compared to the '59)

I'll go with Mark on the Custom 5, I haven't tried a '59 but I have a Jazz in one of my guitars and I don't think it'd suit you. It doesn't really suit me either, thinking about it
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

About how much do all these cost just out of curiosity.

Why the Epiphone Blues Custom? I'm curious. Since you live in Canada, I would've thought Traynor to be the obvious choice.



Because I didnt see any Traynors at Long&McQuade last week :P

Yeah on the seymour duncan website I think I like the tone of the Pearly gates a little bit more than the 59. But its not letting me listen to the Custom 5

The Pearly Gates is different than the '59. You could said it's a bit more "rude". It's a great pickup, but if you use your neck pickup for cleans, the '59 is nicer.

About the Blues Custom/Traynor thought...I still think Traynor are superior to the Blues Custom line, so I would maybe try again, or ask about it.

The Pearly Gates is a touch rawer and less refined than the 59, and also has a softer attack and feels a bit "spongier"... it's fun
