I'm looking for pickups around £100 mark, both bridge and neck I need. I play mostly blues/blues-rock e.g. Peter Green tone.

Cheers,

Edit: 160 (USD), Also I play through an AC15 and the reason for new pickups is that they sound thin with high gain.

I am far too lazy to convert GBP to USD, but GFS pickups are the best value for the price. They are high quality pickups for cheap. By high quality I mean at least Duncan/Dimarzio quality. They're also reviewed on Harmony Central, check out the reviews. I won't recommend which ones because, as previously stated, I'm too lazy

Ah, well, it's got a Vox Style tonestack, of course. The Bass and treble controls are interactive with the mids. It's hard to get the hang of it, but you can raise the mids a bit, and this should make it sound thicker.
Try reducing the bass a bit, see what happens.


If you're in Europe, good cheap pickup options I would look into would be Irongear.

I personally have used their pickups and they're great!
most of their pickups are only £20-30 but i think they have a higher end range now that cost around £40 a piece

hope that helps!

EDIT: just realised the guy above said irongear :P

Irongear sound nice for the money but Wilkinsons would be another good budget option and would be easier to find locally. Remember, to get a PG type tone you have to reverse the magnet and phasing of the neck pickup, so shielded wiring is essential. You can get the PG Blues set already wired that way from Bareknuckles but their list price is £190 a pair.
