There is a Dimebucker for the humbucker on my soon to be Ibanez GSA60. Is that better than the stock pickups? I heard dimebuckers are bad but are they at least better than the stock on a GSA60? The stock are "Powersound" pickups.

What exactly do you want to play? Also, i'd stay away from any gear with Dime's name on it. Nothing against him, but it's very likely that it'll be overpriced for the amount of quality you get.

$120 used, in very good condition. Guitar retails for $200. Seemed like a nice deal at the time.

And I plan on experimenting with different stuff really. I play acoustic so my tastes have been sorta set on acousticy stuff because of it. I'm still trying to find what I like playing, since right now I like playing all sorts of stuff but only having an acoustic kinda makes that hard.

Haven't really heard anything good about the Dimebucker, but I'd recommend a Dimarzio X2N.

it's not even worth that considering the alternatives. But it is better than the stock pickups for metalz I guess...

what are you running for an amp? if you're worried about tone, your best bet is to look at the amp your playing thru. a pickup, especially ones that are just meant to be loud and trebly, won't help much.

Well since nobody has really addressed your question yet...YES...that pickup will be better than the stock pickups.

Thanks to everyone's responses.
and to reply to Kivarenn82, I'll be playing it through a Peavey Vypyr 15.

In that case, get some pickups that are MIUK, they'll be cheaper.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
