I just purchased a Jackson SL2H with Seymour Duncan Pups, and it plays beautifully. I noticed that when I use my Morley Wah and Ibanez CS-9 Chorus that the effects are more vibrant with this guitar than my others. Is it possible for high-end pickups to increase the vibrancy and response of my pedals?

I don't see why it wouldn't make a difference. If new strings can sound better, im SURE that your new pickup in your new guitar may sound better too

atleast until you neeeeed new gear again
