I was wondering what it usually costs to have someone replace two humbuckers, excluding the cost of the new humbuckers?

I am thinking of buying an Ibanez RGR420EX and swapping the humbuckers with better DiMarzios. I think there is a local shop near my house that can take care of it, since I don't know how to. I was just curious what it might cost me.

Thanks a lot.

I've seen anything from free to $150 bucks...

Some people are generous, and some people will milk every last cent outta' you.

It's SIMPLE to do by yourself after you look at some wire charts and get some practice with a soldering iron.

Depends on how good friends you are with the shop and where you got the pups. I'd try and do it yourself though

new pickups can be anywhere from 150 for a pair to 200 dollars each... just look them up and find the price.

getting them installed can be anywhere from 20 bucks to 200, depending on how big a douche the guy doing the work wants to be. of course, some guys are serious experts, and come highly recommended, etc... but your average retail shop guitar tech shouldn't be too expensive.

I don't have the equipment to do it myself, and I don't want to mess up on my new guitar (the warrantee doesn't cover that!).

DUDE!

I already answered this in electric guitar... and I said use the searchbar not make a new thread!

I posted here when no one answered the other for like 15 minutes. I thought I had posted in the wrong thread. Excuse me, I'm new at this.

Sorry about that.

You see, I assumed you had read my post in electric guitar, and then proceeded to do this.

My bad .

Well if you see yourself needed to do more wiring in the future then go th DIY route. It honestly isn't that hard. But if not just ask the shop how much it would be and if it's too expensive then just do it yourself.
