Hey, I got a RR1 Rhoads guitar, but I dont really care for the pickups in it. I'm wondering what kind I should buy. I play more of metal music, like Dethklok, Children Of Bodom, ect... Can anyone give me any suggestions??

Here is a link to the amp I've got, its not very good, but it works.

EMG's with an 18v mod maybe.

What amp do you have? EMG's should drive tubes.

it's not the pickups. it's your amp. get a new amp. the frontman cannot do metal

EMGs are just for metal, so if thats all your doing, get them. but if u wanna do some not so heavy music i suggest you get duncans.

Lots of musicians use EMGS, not just metal.
They're actually pretty versatile.
He's already got duncans in there at the moment so that didn't really help.

If you're after COB and Dethklok type of sound, i'd get a Krank rev jr amp.
Then if you're still lacking, get some SD blackouts or EMGs
COB used to use EMG's, but switched to Blackouts and Dethklok use EMGs so you can't go wrong either way!
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

everyone thinks pickups will give you "teh br00tal seks m3ta7" tone... but without the proper amp, you're just pissing in the wind.
