i hav an epiphone les paul standard. currently, it has the stock alcino humbuckers that it had when i bought the guitar. well i think the time has come for me to upgrade my pickups. please give me some suggestions for which pickups to buy. include the price too please. i want to get a thick, full sound. i like jimmy pages tone a lot. its very full. i like playing classic rock, hard rock, some metal, and blues. unfortunately, i hav a line 6 spider III 75 watt amp (yes i kno it sucks but theres nothing i can do about that rite now). so please help me get a better sound from my guitar.

thanks

I'm not going to get into amp bashing. I don't care if you play your guitar through your smoke detector. But the bottom line is, you will not enjoy the benefits on new pickups on a solid state. Especially not that one. Again, I'm not attacking your amp. I have a Vox solid state and I wouldn't waste my money on pickups either.

Honestly, put it in a new amp fund.
