    Default Epiphone SG + 59n/C5 = tone monster

    I'm writing this topic to thank all the users here, especially blueman335, that suggested me the 59n/C5 combo for my Epiphone SG. After a while using the C5, I've finally got the 59n and it's like I've bought a new guitar.

    Thank you, everyone. As an advice, I'd recommend to every Epiphone owner here: REPLACE YOUR STOCK PICKUPS NOW!

    As usual, sorry about my bad english.

    I'm a fan of "Live with the stock pups a while, and be sure they are adjusted right." But I have never, nor heard of, an epiphone surviving that test. They use the most meh pups the world could ever know of...

    This should be a public service announcement, for the health and safety of the general public.

    However, if you want to make a "fire breathing tone monster" out of that SG, try a C8(b)/Pearly Gates(n) combination.
