Hello UG,

I have a Korean Epiphone Les Paul Ultra and a Vox VR15 amp. I also have a Jekyll & Hyde V2 pedal. I'm looking to replace the stock pickups. I'd like a Led Zeppelin sound and maybe some heavier sounds (Judas Priest) as well. Should i get a Gibson Burstbucker and a Burstbucker 2 or a Burstbucker 2 and 3?

bridge - Dimarzio Norton
neck - PAF Pro
My Gear
-Gibson Les Paul Studio
-Ibanez "lawsuit" Les Paul
-Ibanez S470
-PRS SE Custom

Marshall TSL100
Marshall 1960a cab

Dunlop 535q wah
Visual Sound Liquid Chorus


EDIT: My bad.

Anyway, a pickup change won't matter with that amp. Save the money for a new amp.

My first post clearly indicates
"I have a Korean Epiphone Les Paul Ultra and a Vox VR15 amp"
Must have missed it, but it's there

Thanks for the reply, JLT73, but do you think those pickups are a better than the options I listed? I'll take a look into those two, but out of the two combinations I set, which would be better for my needs?

Thanks UG
Custom 5/Jazz or Super Distortion/PAF Pro
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC
So nobody recommends the choices I had? As I said I'm going to take a look at the ones you guys recommended (thanks for the help too, guys) but what do you think about the pickups I had in mind? Are they nothing compared to the ones recommended?
