alrighty then you masters of tone. i'm lookin' to buy a new set of humbuckers for my Epi SG G-400. I play more hardrock/metal than anything else. but i'd like decent cleans because i might play in church a few times i'd like the sound to be very clear and articulate, but then again...who doesn't?


i was thinking about getting these two:

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Seymour-Duncan-SH-1--59-Model-Electric-Guitar-Pickup-300010-i1127357.gc

would these make a good set? if not, know any others? also i'm not limited to certain brands or anything but i'd like the cost to be under $150

oh, and i'm not looking for any active pups either...

Not sure what to tell you about neck humbuckers, since I haven't had enough experience with them.
If you like clear and articulate, the Seymour Duncan pearly gates does that well.

yes those match up well, but i prefer the hot rodded set, the Jb has a bit more clarity than the Distorton (IMO)

I've heard good things about the clarity of Dimarzio Evolution pickups.


They are kind of lead voiced pickups IMO.

so would a '59 in the neck and an evo in the bridge get me what i'm lookin' for?

i don't really do much leadwork though...i prefer playing rythym and headbanging...
