(sigh)....a pickup change won't do **** if you're playing through a crappy amp. do NOT get the spider. your main focus should be getting a quality amp, as that is what affects your tone the most. what kind of music do you play?

Roland Cube, Peavey Vypyr, and B52 AT112 60W. Are all in the same price range as the spider and all 20x better.

Seriously, B-52 or the Vypyr amp. People dont like Spiders because they are (bad) digital modeling amps. They sound decent for bedroom practicing, but if you try to crank it the tone disappears. Get rid of the marshall, and get a real amp.

People, please stop taking topics and facts said on this website and others too far. Upgrading your pick-ups will always alter your tone, no matter what amp you have. Instead of berating the bloke, simply offer a polite alternate solution, in this case, a new amp.

As mentioned, if you are interested in buying a new amp, a Roland Cube, Vox VT, Peavey Vypyr, Line6 Flextone III, B52 AT, Kustom Contender, etc. will be good.

Otherwise, what kind of budget are you looking at for new pickups/amp?

Go to a music shop with your SG & ask to try a few different amps. Try at least one small 5watt tube amp & see what your guitar sounds like, if you like the sound don't change your pick-ups, change your amp! A Peavey Royal Eight or Fender Champ 600 will be about the same price as a new set of good pick-ups, so the choice is yours. Plus you get to have fun with several different amps, which is always good ;0)
