hey guys, i just bought an epiphone DOT studio. i love the feel of it, but the stock pickups just dont do it for me, so im swapping them out. my style is anywhere between heavy blues to light metal. i was wondering if you could suggest some pickups for me. thanks

If you want to stick with a passive pickup, I would put a Gibson Dirty Fingers or the PAF.

Maybe a Seymour Duncan SH-8


Actually, I would put 57's in it, but that won't be the best for metal... BUT you would have the best tone around...

Putting '57s in it would be pointless. The stock pickups it comes with are already built off the '57 design, just made in China rather than America. Tonally 'upgrading' to '57s would get you a little more clarity and dynamic response, but it'd only be the smallest possible change, which depending on your amp, you may not even notice.
