So i've been looking around for some new pickups for my Epi LP for quite some time. And i've narrowed it down slightly. I play mostly classic rock, blues-rock, hard rock, alternative rock, some older punk rock, and dabble into metal every so often. My gear is in my sig.

So my first option would be these but i kinda like the look of nickel covers more, so the same pickup with that cover is here. So no difference there other than aesthetics(sp?).

My second choice is this in the neck, and this in the bridge.

So basically what i'm asking, is what the main difference will be between the two options.

I really don't like the JB for any type of music (maybe hair metal?). I think it's much too thin and trebly.

if you get the hot rodded set just get the plain kind
and then just but some gibson pickup covers for like 10 each
or take the cover off the ones on your guitar now

You were close with the second choice, just swap the Custom Custom for the Custom 5 and you'll be sorted.

The Custom 5 is better for a Les Paul. The Custom Custom is going to be too mushy. The Custom 5 provides some top end and midrange bite that will sound great in a Les Paul. I agree with steven seagull.


@forsaknazrael: okay thanks. i just wasnt quite sure
EDIT: which would you choose?

Alnico 5 magnet versus the Alnico 2 in the Custom Custom, so its a bit brighter which balances nicely with the mahogany body, and it has a tighter bottom end making it more versatile when it comes to higher gain tones.
