well i just recently bought a jackson randy rhoads...and the pick ups that are currently on it dont give me the sound i rlly want. i dont know if its the pick ups or amp. my amp i have is called Kustom. i got it reeeeaaaal cheap. the music i typically play on my jackson is usually theash metal and stuff like tht. what pick ups would you suggest i get to get the thrash sound?

I say you should look into a new amp. Kustom are generally decent amps, but any cheap amp (no matter the brand) isn't going to give you great tone.

Whats your budget?
#4
no specific budget. but i could go with a nice amp without any effects cuz i got a boss overdrive/distortion pedal. but for an amp prolly no more than 400.

For your budget I recommend you look into a Peavey Windsor Studio 1x12 combo. The Windsor is a single channel, British voiced amp (think Marshall JCM800 type of tone) that will pull off thrash metal with ease.
#6
take your guitar to a music store (Guitar center, local music stores) and try out some amps. that way you can figure out if its the amp or pickups.
#9
pickups won't completely change your sound. all they can do is improve an already good setup, which you don't have.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I'd recommend you get a new amp before messing with pickups, and I think the Blackstar HT-5 stack would be better than the Peavey Windsor.

For hard rock or general metal I would second the HT-5 recommendation, but thrash is pretty much where the Windsor excels and I personally think it would be a better choice than an HT-5. To each his own though

hmmm you had much time with the Peavey Windsor?

I had about 20 minutes with it, so maybe I couldn't get that thrash sound in that time.
