I want to buy a new bridge humbucker for my guitar (Aria STG-006 without the neck humbucker), but I don't know much about pickups and humbuckers and stuff. So I need some suggestions for a humbucker. I play mostly blues, funk, soul and psychedelic rock, so it should be a humbucker that goes well with these genres. My budget is a little tight, so it should be lower than 150$.
Thanks in advance.

Peace.

Tom.

Something from GFS would be nice. Id put in a coil tap tho, for funk and cleaner stuff, or maybe you could put in a P-90. A Gibson P-94 would work, and I think GFS has several P-90s in humbucker form.

hmmm... Seymour Duncan '59 humbucker would work, and the alnico pro II are really good, low output pickups, great for vintage tones.

if you wanted a more modern sound, DiMarzio are really good pickups, too. the Fred and the joe satriani signature pickup (the name escapes me) are really good alternatives if you want a more modern tone but with the feel of older pickups.

DiMarzio PAF Pro?

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

What amp do you have currently?

I have a Harley Benton GA5H (5 watts) and a Harley Benton G212 guitar cabinet.

I saw some of Seymour Duncan's humbucker and they're just what I need. I just need to know wich one of them is the best to get a vintage sound.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

yes, speed is important, but its a bad habit to get into, because it will eventually work its way into your longer posts and make you sound retarded

Yeah, I live in Portugal. Harley Benton is pretty good. I don't know about their guitars and pedals, but the amps are really good.

Yes, and mettle makes you sound really educated.

yeah, the amps are meant to be slightly modified versions of the epiphone ones

you can get duncans and dimarzios reasonably cheaply (for europe, anyway) from thomann... if you ask me, they're still not amazing value in europe, but they're certainly better value than from a lot of other shops.

i like handwound pickups... there are several guys in the UK making them, and with the favourable exchange rate at the minute, you might get a good deal- if you aren't hit for a lot of postage, lol. there are probably guys throughout europe too making them, but i only know of a couple in germany...

there are also a couple of companies making really, really cheap pickups- irongear and tonerider, which you can get in the UK. I haven't tried them, but hear good things- i may try them just to see. but having not tried them, i don't know whether all the praise is because the really low price has lowered expectations...

really up to you... there's almost too much choice, that's the problem.
