You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

For $30, those pickups aren't going to be any better than the pickups already in your Epi LP Standard. Hell even if they were $30 each they wouldn't be any better.

Epi LP Standard's pickups are based off the design of the Gibson '57 Classic pickups, just made in the Chinese factories rather than in the American factories. So to get noticably better, you're going to have to look at pickups in the range of at least $50 each. You're certainly better off just saving up more and buying some better quality pickups.

Also, consider changing your amp. 99.99% of the time when people want to adjust their tone, they're better off either changing amp or getting a good EQ system, rather than changing pickups.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

I would pass on them, and get the GFS pickups. The blow out stuff is not their's and is not great.

get real gfs ones still pretty cheap and much better if those were $20 they'd be worth it not $30 though

i would save up for a pedal or FX workstation. I had so much fun with a gnx 3 that i hurt my fingers playing so much one night. it was $117 at GC clearance.

go try some pedals out at a store - then price shop on the net.

live.com will get you 30% off ebay BIN / PAYPAL if you can follow instructions.

good luck

Your epi pickups are going to be better than the pickups you are looking at. Don't downgrade.
Not taking any online orders.

Then go with some decent Duncans or DiMarzios instead. Or get some made by nuthinbuttrubl8 here on UG. He makes great pickups to your specs, from what I've heard
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Mod in UG's Official Gain Whores

Be more exact.
The more exact you get, the more I can help you.

Which pickup positions are we talking about?
What's your amp's current EQ?

What microphonics issues? To a point, ALL pickups are susceptible to hum and feedback. It's common when you use a healthy amount of gain. Feedback is also unavoidable if you stand near your amp.
