i have a epi les paul and i was wondering if i should change the pickups on it to seymour duncan 51/jb's or trade it in for a LTD Deluxe EC 1000?

would i save money with just changing pickups or is it worth getting the LTD?

Well, maybe I don't! :evil: I guess there's just no one here who's used them.

If you have the money I would go for the EC 1000. I've played one before and it was pretty sweet.

Ska.

Just looked at the EC 1000 I'm not crazy about it. Tone an Volume knobs would be in my way and would get really annoying. I'm not sure if you would agree. the only thing good about it really good is :!: EMG active81's :!: Those are brilliant.

Why don't you keep your Epi and just put those new Pickups in or a set of EMG's maybe a 60/81 or 85/81 combo believe me they will not disappoint.

Just a question for you aswell i'm going through my nirvana faze and was wondering what happened to the bass player Kris. He seems to have vanished :?:

Just curious- which model Epi LP? I have a std. They have the Gibson chrome pickups. It's my first electric so I don't know much about all the different kinds and what's good and what's not- what do you like about the ones you want to put in? This would just be good to know for future reference. if you do change the pickups, please post again and share your experience woith them.

Thanks much.

Regards,

Mike

krist is going into politics soon

i heard emg's run on battery, does that mean the battery has to get replaced?

Yes, most EMG pickups are battery powered. The exception to this is the HZ series, they're passive.

ok since they are battery powered, would i have to replace the battery ever couple of months or something?

Yes, you will have to replace the battery(ies) periodically. How often depends upon how often you play, but if you use a lithium battery, it may last a couple years. Here's a FAQ on EMG pups:
