I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

^^I stand corrected. Most people haven't, when they recommend BKP. However, still, please try and make you posts less vague. Recommend a particular model. Yelling out a brand name doesn't help anyone.

1 - Rust does not affect the performance of a pickup.
2 - A pickup upgrade right now, with your current amp, will probably not make a noticeable difference.
3 - Pinch harmonics are ALL about technique. If I can nail them on my vintage output Strat pickups, you can nail them on your rusty pickups.

+1 to all that because it's all true.

TS, you probably need new strings more than you need pickups, and the guitar isn't really worth upgrading anyway.

If new strings don't help then buy a new amp.
Actually called Mark!

I would suggest TS get a new guitar before anything.

Assuming he's just a bedroom player at this stage (why else would you have a micro spider? I didn't even know they made them) there's no real need for a new amp, but if he's having trouble with the pickups a new guitar may be the way to go as AXL products aren't known for brilliant reliability.

How much are you willing to spend?
