Which pickup should I get?

Hi, making a guitar and don't want to go overboard with harware on it (will probably replace it in the future anyway). So yeah I want to try Humbuckers as i haven't tried them before. I don't want to spend more 20 for the two (so yeah really cheap) but could you recommend me some - I've found lots on ebay quite cheap from Hong Kong and china though I'm not sure how much I should trust them.

Thanks

They're a little more than 20 for two, but you won't regret it. It might be worth getting a decent bridge pickup and then really skimping on the neck for a while.

^ yeah you probably don't want to cheap out too much

i've heard decent things about entwistles and axesrus pickups too (though i haven't tried them), maybe slightly cheaper than irongear but still not exactly 20 for two. I probably wouldn't go any cheaper than that.

Used might get you down to the price you want, though.

Warman pickups.
Might get a set for 25 posted. Meant to be good but cheap. Step before iron gears.

yeah i think i've maybe heard that they're ok too. Maybe ironstone or something like that as well. they're a bit cheaper, though, they might be a step below irongear, as you said.
