Im getting a silverburst custom LP. Gibson =)

I kinda like the current pickups but I want to upgrade or change tone.

I want a (here comes the noob flaming) Slash (gasp) sound, kinda Motley Crue, you know, 80's hair metal. and yet still be able to get a great clean, like Johnny Cash or country stuff.

Im doing an upcomming tribute concert for THE WHO, so anything that could help me get that sound would be great as well.

Telecaster Deluxe.
Do a quick pickup switch (might not even be needed) and it would fit perfectly.

EDIT: Damn me and my non-reading skills. I thought he said recommend a new guitar. Alas, I am the silly fool this time. But anyways, the buckers in the Gibson should work just fine. All I could recommend is maybe a '57 Vintage.

Your buying a gibson and you don't even know what an alnico magnet is?

You shame all guitar players. I hope its an epiphone.

One more question: what amp are you using? I hate to sound like 99% of everyone on GG&A, but the amp is making up more of your tone than the guitar itself.

I do know what They are, I dont know whats better, Alnico 2s 5's 8's or what.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.
