Epihpone Black Beauty

A general newbie to Gibson/Epiphone stuff here, as the stuff I have currently consists of Ibanez, ESP, Kramer (go '80s barettas!), and other miscellaneous small-name crap companies.

I was curious as to a few things about the Epiphone Black Beauty (the one with 3 humbuckers). Firstly, does anyone have any first hand experiences with them, and in terms of quality/playability, how does it rate in general?

Second, are the stock pickups any decent? I was thinking that if I indeed decide to purchase one, I'd replace them anyway (I saw a picture of a guy who had one replaced with 3 white DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan's, and the white-with-black-dots had a really awesome contrast to the body of the guitar).

Third, WITH replacing them, what would you generally suggest in terms of replacement (bridge, middle, neck) positions and such?

Thanks for your help
