Hi!

I have an Ibanez RG320 and I love the thing to bits. However, the standard Infinity pickups are mainly geared towards metal, meaning it sounds great with heavy distortion and powerchords, but if I want to play more chord orientated stuff it sounds way too fuzzy and blurry

Does anyone have suggestions of pickups I can fit my Ibanez with that will still provide enough crunch for a punky sound, but with enough clarity to also pull off nice jangly sounding chords without getting all mushy? My guitar has 2 Humbuckers.

Thanks!

Duncan JB possibly if your guitar is basswood. It sounds good in basswood and mahogany imo. Or you can buy duncan distortion. It has more headroom than a jb, but it has a bit more bass and less highs. I know that's not what you want.

why not switch to an HSS setup, keeping the bridge humbucker, but putting singles in the neck and middle?

Well for one thing no pickguard, and assuming this one has a beautiful top like other RG320's, filling the cavities isnt an option

Cheers for the suggestions guys! Keep em coming :P

And yeah blindsagacity is right on that front theres no way I'm having another pickup in the middle :/ I'm basically looking for a pair of humbuckers that will give me a warm Telecaster-ish sound with little or no distortion but that still has some bite when you crank it up

I appreciate the suggestions thanks!

Have you considered trying Ernie Ball Slinky's? For some reason I've found them to be janglier/twangier than most other strings.
It'd be a cheap(er than new pickups) first step.

You might want to consider getting a push-pull and installing a phase switch too. It gives a nice sound that contributes to "jangle" I've found.

Yeah I've got a Fender amp- I'm already using Super Slinky's....and I'm really considering getting a Seymour Duncan SH-2 Jazz humbucker for the neck.....I'm still not sure what would go well in the bridge though...any suggestions?


Thanks guys!
