i have an ibanez custom with an h-s-h pickup setup. the pickups lost there pizzaz to them a while ago. im looking for some new ones. Any ideas of some inexpensive Metal pickups. I dont need it to play clean well, i just need a hard rock-metal sound. Im in a hardcore/hard rock band, and a metalcore/electronica band, therfore i dont need anything clean

I have GFS pickups, and they are really great. Just like EMG's, each note rings out, even in 6-string chords. They also respond to your volume control very well, being clean at 1 and crazy dirty at 10. I have the Vintage '59 set, and they were only $40 a piece. DO NOT buy their electronics, as they are crap. But, their pickups are great buys.

Btw, I'm obsessed with getting my Les Paul a H-S-H setup. It's just H-x-H right now.

I'm also in a hardcore band, and I personally believe they are better than my other guitar players custom Jackson with DiMarzios. Not to sound like an advertisement or anything, but really. We're all on a budget, dude. Lol

Whats your budget?

What tone are you looking to emulate, exactly? Name some bands.

What amp are you currently using?

Man I found their electronics to be great. I had the lil killer but not an actually humbucker, the killer was great though.

what kind of amp are you using? It's kinda hard to pick out a set of pups for you when we dont know your amp. And are you looking for actives or passives?

Seymour Duncan '59s are one of the best quality for price pickups out there.

Far superior to the GFS vintage '59s imo.

pickups don't "lose their pizazz", they aren't soda pop...they're still exactly the same as when you bought the guitar.

What amp are you using and what's actually wrong with your tone - pickups may not be your issue.

Easy there tiger, i think he means that his ear has developed past the stage where he thinks they sound good.

And TS, just a suggestion, but maybe save up a little longer. Getting another cheap set will probably mean you're gonna swap them out again later.
