    SD Custom or Distortion are the two most commonly brought up here...

        I would suggest the Suhr Aldrich pickup, it's exceptionally clear and handles heaps of gain really well. Best high gain pickup I've ever used. I use it in my mahogany body Ibanez SZ2020 prestige and it sounds really nice (sig).

          '57 classics are perfect in SGs. just the right balance of everything.

              the seymour in my jackson rr5 was pretty decent. i forget which seymour it was but maybe you should give it a thought.

                if they're stock, it could already have '57 classics...

                but if they sound kinda chunky and muddy, it probably has the 490r/498t set.

                    THe Custom and Custom Custom really sound good in mahagony guitars.. Im gonna be trying out a Duncan Distortion in an all mahogany guitar. A dude on Ebay is selling brand new TB-6's for $49 shipped.. Too good of a deal not to give them a try..
                    SPAM




                    -Dimarzio Paf 7-$45 or trade for a Duncan custom 7

                    -Mick Thomson Blackouts set- $110 or $100 for just pickups, no pots/harnesses

                    emg 81 or 85. $50. I'm keeping one, so whichever one sells first..

                    -Ibanez Ts9- like new $60

                    -Modded ProCo Rat (pm for info) $70

                        It seemed skeptical, but its on its way( or so the email stated) and he has positive feedback from others who bought em.. The auction states he bought all the overstock of a certain guitar manufacturer that used to use them in their guitars.. When I bought mine, it said there was still 40 left..
