Hey, I got an Ibanez SA220FM and it hasn't got the best pick-ups and I'm looking to buy some new ones. I mainly play metal so I was thinking of getting some EMG's but I want to know which ones to get before I spend any money on some. From looking around, I was thinking of getting some 81's at the bridge but I'm not quite sure which ones to get at the neck. I've also heard of sustaniac pick-ups which sound pretty good because I do want to play those really high notes that seem to last forver. Quite Epic. Hope you guys can help out.

he's got 2 MG's
so... New amp, Pickups won't help much, espescially not actives

if you insist on new pick ups, dont get active ones
go SD JB/59 or something

Jesus tits. You bought an MG50 after owning an MG15? Seriously? lol.

Well, you ARE 13.

New amp, etc. actives aren't going to do anything to help you out here.

I'm not sure what the general thoughts are on the Valveking around here, but they are good for the price.

Also I have a soft spot for the crate palomino.

Your friend is an idiot.

Edit: I'll elaborate. Dimebucker sucks. It really does. I don't go for much of a metal tone, but you really can't go wrong with the JB/59 combo from Duncan.

Yea, we didnt really know much about gear and stuff, we kinda just played guitar coz afterall, thats what its all about. So we decided to actually find out about all this stuff so I headed straight to UG while he headed right for the catalouges lol
