hey how are you guys doing, i recently picked up and epi les paul standard ( because im poor and i cannot afford the real one) anyway as you can tell by my name, i love 80's hair metal bands such as ratt and van halen. i was wondering what would be a good set of pick ups or pick up combonations for this type of music from SD. i was told by a sales person at Guitar Center that the SH-14 "Custom Five" was great because it was very versatile, he said it could go from a screaming metal riff to, smooth and bluesy. he told me to check this sight out so i did.
now i did some hwk and im stuck between three choices, ( but you if any of you people have any different ideas and advice please share im open to anything) the SH-14 "custom Five",
the LW-HMET "LiveWire Metal Humbucker"
and the SH-10 "full shread"
please help me out i really don't feel like putting anything that looks like an EMG (the LW-HMET "LiveWire Metal Humbucker")
on a les paul (like a Zakk Wylde Custom for instance) but if its the only one that sounds good i guess.... and so far thats the only one that sounds *****en, anyway leave one here and thanks...
