I've been playing guitar for a while, but dont have too much on technical know-how.

I own a gibson SG. I love it,though I find the sound to be a little muffled and heavy.
Would changing one of both pickups make a big difference?
I'm looking for a more defined, crisper sound, as im into playing reggae, funk and indyish rock.
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

What kind of amp do you have? That affects the clarity and definition more than pups. Especially the speaker in the amp.

Yup, its the amp. Any budget for a new amp?

check out craigslist or ebay for some used stuff, you'll shave a few hundred off MSRP and get a great amp for cheap!

Or... i'm definitely going to get flamed, but...
Check out Bugera. Incredible amps for almost no money. If you're into reggae/funk/indie, I'd reccomend the V55 or V22. They are tube amps, so you have to treat them carefully/replace tubes every so often, but they sound much better than your MG.

Come to think of it, my dog farting probably sounds better than an MG.

Also, check out the Peavey Vypyr series. They're modeling amps, so you'll be able to play a good range of stuff. It won't sound as good at any one thing as an amp built for that purpose, but they get the job done.

Also, if you'd be willing to pay for shipping to Canada (cash only), I have a Peavey Bandit I might be willing to sell.
