I once had an SG Epiphone, and I upgraded it with some passive EMG's and had them able to coil tap as well. Made a big difference and helped me get that metal tone I was looking for back in the day. Used to be a huge Metallica guy - learned all their songs form Kill 'em All to the Black album. The albums after that never really happened - and I like to think sort of that the Black album never happened either... Nonetheless, EMG pickups + SG = AWESOME!

cool, !

there is a sg special emg
i know this kind of guitar which would be better with a better nut ? and especially locking tuners and a fast access heel which is not there

another option is the ESP viper 1000 (locking tuners) but i think it's not the good place lol

Hey man, whatever makes you happy, get it. You are just talking to a guy who liked the EMG pickups in his Epiphone SG. I would imagine that they would sound great in a Gibson SG. But anyhow, buy the guitar that makes you happy if you're going that route. Either this or customize your axe of choice with the necessary electronics. Who am I to get in the way of anyone's happiness? Good luck with everything, I hope everything works out.
