well.. mmm i dont know if this in another thread but i'm tired of looking. xD
so i need some advice in my jackson js20 guitar.
i'm planning to change the hambucker pickup.. (never liked the original. they get a lot of unwanted noice )
to an emg 81 ..
so i was wondering if that is a good idea?
and what more do i need to buy if i going change the pickup. ?

oo by the way.
i plug my guitar to an Line 6 Spider III HD150


so i think thats all
..any advice would be great. =D

Nope not a good idea.

Pickup changes aren't very good for SS amps, and even worse for modelling amps like yours.
EMG's are the worst to pick for modelling amps.

Save for a new amp instead, it'll be worth it.

Through that amp you will hardly notice any difference tbh
It's not a great guitar or amp, so there's no point sticking an expensive pickup in it when you could put that money towards some new gear
Also, a hambucker sounds tasty
ohai little sig.

It's not the guitar, it's the amp.

Even a peavey vypyr 15 would be better, imo.
