I don't know exactly which model you've got but the factory pickups in the better Epis are actually quite decent in my experience, I don't think you'll see that much of a difference (unless you hot rod it with some exotic pickup or other, but then it won't sound much like a Les Paul anyway).

I think DiMarzio pickups are the way to go. Joe Satriani and Steve Vai both use them, and they're probably 2 of the top guitarist out there.

I've been looking for the answer to this questions too... I have an Epi LP Custom and a Gibson LP Deluxe and frankly the quality difference from the Gibson is not worth the price difference. So I'm picking up a new Epi LP Classic (cheap on Musicians Friend) and changing the pickups. From the live videos, the white LP that Edge uses for One has uncovered pickups which I once read were DiMarzios, likely their "high gain"" series. Before buying these instead of Gibson pickups, I'd like someone to confirm. Thanks...
