Well I want to try and sort out my guitar so that A) it sounds better & B) it's louder! (of a similar volume to my SG) my SG has a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge.

I want to know if I change my pickups in my Fender jaguar/jazzmaster hybrid copy to like Billy Corgans ones or something, would that change the output volume of the guitar?

So if I buy a Les Paul standard and throw it 200 mph, its binding will generate downforce?

Well, you could try either A: Active pickups or B: higher output pickups. I'd go for the high output passives.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

That along with higher resistance pots (if there's 250k in there right now, go for 500k or 1meg pots)

Try raising your pickups a bit too.
