can anyone recomend me some good pickups. I am looking for a classic rock tone like ac/dc and guitar solos. I have a schecter tempest custom, I have been looking at gibson, semour duncan and emg pickups, are any of these better than the others?

I use Seymore Duncans in my Gibson LP. An Invader and a Dimebucker to be exact and I get wonderful Classic tone out of 'em. It could be due to the guitar itself too, but Shecter makes quality stuff so you should be all right no matter what your decision may be.

EMG's won't get a sound similar to the Gibsons at all. They're more meant for metal and hard rock, and don't sound too good for much else.
Seymour Duncan and Gibson both make great pickups. In the case of Seymour Duncan, they make dozens of models, so, there should be one that will work for you. You also may want to look at DiMarzio.
