Okay so im originally i bass player but now have been playing guitar for about 6 months. Im in a new band (stuff like Bullet and A7x) where i'll be doing lead vocals and rhythm guitar. I have a Ltd EC-50 which i want to sound a good as i can make it sound for the shows we will be playing soon.

So i thought id start with the pickups i was thinking of putting a Duncan JB in the bridge position(which is what i mainly use) because thats what Zacky V from A7x uses and i really like his tone. But is there any other pickups i should be looking at?

Also i heard that sometimes put decent pickups into a lower end guitar can still not improve the sound due to woods and all that, so any thoughts on that would be helpful also.

hmm. I would go with a duncan jb/59 set honestly. that's what I have and they sound fantastic for multiple genres, especially metal
