Gonna get some new pickups for my new Virgo I bought (BC Rich, one hell of a sexy beast).
--> I was thinking EMG 60's (at the neck) and an EMG 81 (at the bridge), so if anyone on here has had any experience with these pickups please lemme know what you think of them.
--> (If the above dont work out) What pickups do you suggest? I need something that are really good, and something that'll scream the fuck out when Pinch Harmonics are performed.
--> Amplifier= dead, my Line 6 Spider II died a few weeks ago (my fault), so what amp do you guys suggest? I'm doing a lot of research and so far I've concluded that electronic amps, as in non-tube amps, (as in amps that "emulate" the sound using computer programs and stuff like my Spider II) arent the best choice when it comes to sound and stuff. So ya any suggestions on a good amp with overdrive built in if possible but doesnt have to be. 30 Watts and up if possible, perhaps even a 100 (i plan on gigging this summer). I play mostly Metallica (pre-Black Album), Iron Maiden, some Slayer, Slipknot, SOAD, Malmsteen, Stone Sour, and even some Seether (wow so many S's lol) and the classic rock/roll/metal songs.
