I'm really thinking of changing out the pickups in my old Ibanez GRX20. Yes I know, it's a newbie model but I still think it's great. Now, the pickups in it are starting to sound really really muddy. I was wondering what would the famous, awesome guitar gods of UG recommend for good pickups that are clear or bright but not so bright you have to turn the bass all the way up to compensate for how bright they are.
Amp? Budget? Genres?
Amp:Peavey Envoy 110 with Eminence ragin' cajin speaker
Are you truly happy with your amp? Because pickups are really meant to tweak an already good sound, not compensate for a bad one. And it's rare that pickups just start sounding muddy.
yah i am happy with an amp it's just that now the pickups on the guitar, which are the stock ones are muddy. It's probably me just noticing a difference cause i've been playing for four years now. but anyhow I do have a good sound I just wanna make it clearer than before cuz right now when I play some chords you cant tell that I've changed chords.
Okay, maybe a Duncan SH-4 and SH-1?
