hello
ive been looking at buying a new guitar for the last couple of weeks, mainly looking at ibanez rg's around $600AUD. but today i stumbled across an epiphone les paul standard with hard case for $400AUD, quote "Top-of-the-line Epiphone Les Paul, with set neck, Grover tuners and original vacuum-waxed humbuckers.
Particularly good-looking timber on the body has a deep flame effect which looks great! Purchased less than a year ago and hardly used."

there is only 2 days left for bidding, but at that price i could easily do a pick up change to emg 81/85's to. I play metal (avenged sevenfold, metallica etc). Would this be capable of fulling this with/without the pick-up change??

thanks in advance

The stock pickups in the Epi les pauls are brilliant, really really high output, not as high as an EMG 81, but they're the best passives I've ever used.

Then don't bother wasting money on pickups, you get a bum deal on gear prices as it is, there's no point spending money on something that realyl isn't going to make a great deal of difference.
