BJ used a JB in his strat at one point. The newer green day sound is all about P-90s and marshall amps. Maybe you should try a new amp instead of switching pick ups? if your amp isnt that great a pick up change isnt gonna make much difference. Dont specials come with Burstbuckers? theyre decent already.

whatever you get, i wouldn't get high output pups, and don't get anything that is naturally bright-seeing as that SG is already gonna be bright enough-that is if you're going to be playing a good amount of cleans, otherwise they'll be ice-picky and harsh without turning down your volume knob. P-90s don't sound like a bad choice, even though some of the characteristic twang is more on the trebly side, it'll sound good for sure.

and even though i'm not HUGE on punk, it would help to know what kind of punk rock you're talking about, these days 'punk' is just as diversified as 'rock'

Don't bother, you'd just be wasting your money - just send Tom Delonge a love letter and be done with it.

three things bro:

1) put a lil more grammar and correct spelling (periods help a lot!), run-on sentences are a B*TCH to read anywhere, let alone on a computer screen

2) don't bother with pups, focus on upgrading your amp to something that isn't an MG or anything with terrible reputation. now i feel dumb for completely overlooking the fact that you don't have a decent enough amp to warrant a pup swap.

3) yes...if you're trying to get really close to a Green Day sound, then an LP jr would be good, as well as a really crunchy sounding tube amp...so yea you could even just stick to your current guitar and wait til you have a much better amp before you focus on pup swapping

you got a ways to go, and seems like a good bit to learn about where most your tone comes from, keep reading up on the forums and you'll learn quick enough

^ DO NOT get an MG!!!

They are horrible, overpriced, oversized practice amps.

Replace amp first, on a shit SS changing pickups will have next to no effect

dont get the Marshall MG. just cause its a marshall doesn't mean it will sound good. only their tube amps sound good. their solid states suck.

what other amps can u get there in Egypt?
