Topic: Which pickups to get for new guitar?
Hi everyone, I am new to this subreddit and am looking for some advice. I am looking to upgrade my current electric guitar and recently played an Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy Custom EX and fell in love with everything about it, except for the pickups. I know that it is geared more towards people who play hard rock/metal, so I need a little advice regarding pickups.
I've never swapped out pickups before, but I play a lot of Blink-182 currently, and would like to start playing some classic rock/blues like AC/DC and Joe Bonamassa so finding a pair of pickups that would accommodate those genre's would be great. I've looked at Seymour Duncan models like the Custom Custom's, Alnico II's, '59's and so on but I am just wondering what everyone else thinks? I will be playing out of a Vox AC15 amp. The pickups that come stock in the guitar are active, so I will I have any problems swapping them out for passives?
