Post What kind of pickups would you recommend in a Les Paul?
Thinking about getting one sometime. I've heard EMG's before and I liked them. Please describe what you like and dislike about certain pickups. Thank you!

Depends on what kind of sound you're looking for... Dunno, lots of different options there.

seymore duncans always and only - the alnico 2 magnets are the shit. I like a rude sound - they are noisy but the george lynch pickups scream

I recommend some single coils , that will make the sound softer und not too thick !!

I've had pretty pleasing results with a Duncan Distortion in the bridge and a Duncan Jazz in the neck. I'm not big on Dimarzios, but I had a guitar with a Super Distortion in the bridge and PAF Pro in the neck. Both combos sounded good and were fairly versatile for different styles of music.

Post Pickups
I usually don't even get involved with type of subject matter being it's very subjective to begin with. I would personally leave it stock. Having said that I have two Gibsons with DiMarzios in them. You can't go wrong with a Dimarzio Super Distortion. Steve Lukather, Al DiMeola, Neal Schon, Ace Frehley, Vinnie Moore, Gary Moore, John Sykes, and countless others have all used Les Pauls with this pickup configuration

I have EMGs in mine, but at one time I had a Duncan Alnico Pro II in the neck and a PAF PRO in the bridge. I really liked the sound, but it wasn't what I was looking for at the time so I went with the EMGs.

Here lately I've been thinking of changing them again, but I'm kind of lazy when it comes to that. :roll:
