I have an Ibanez GSA60, about 3 years old. I am thinking about getting a new guitar but I was wondering if I should just get new pickups to put in it instead to improve the sound? (which would be much less expensive). How much of a difference do new pickups make in a guitar like mine and what pickups would you suggest me put in my GSA60?
Do you like to play the ibanez? Are you comfortable with the guitar? If yes, replace the pickups. If you hate the guitar, find something you like better.
You could upgrade to a guitar with good pickups in it. You can usually find them pretty cheap used, or you could save up and get one. LTD line over 400, higher end Ibanezes, even some Jacksons.
