Since Im going to get some new gear, a new cab, head and my first sevenstring I dont really have money to buy a new sixstring. So I figured out it would sound better with new pickups and it is a cheaper option than buying a completely new guitar. Im pretty lost when it comes to all these pickups.

This is the guitar:

I play mostly Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit. Well, mostly Nu Metal and rock with a lot of cleans. Funk Metal and a little blues.
Im looking for a new Neck and Bridge Pickup. Id like to know wich Low, Mid and High end pickups could fit.
Thank you very much!

most normal-sized humbuckers should fit. what's your budget and what country are you in? (affects prices and availability.) What's your amp?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I live in sweden. Right now my amp is a Line 6 Spider IV 15 which sucks donkeyballs but it is soon to be replaced with an Engl Gigmaster 15 head and a Mesa Boogie Thiele 1x12. My budget is 2000 swedish kronor, that is 300USD.

Dont buy pups for that Ibby, its a solid little guitar but really isnt worth putting more money into mate.

I'd start hitting pawn shops up, sometimes you can find a sweet deal on a guitar for low and the pawn shops don't know what they have, but be carfull. Sometimes they will rip you off. Tom is right, for an entry level guitar I wouldn't waste money on new pups. Buget and save up for something you want, that's what I did instead buying parts.

This. Whereas G-series Ibanez guitars are fantastic FOR THE PRICE ultimately you will be far better off investing in a higher-quality guitar. That being said, in my experience it seems most stock Ibanez pickups are poor anyway..

they arent poor, they are just a Jack of all trade pick ups with medium output

through a nice amp, ibby pups are great for anything you want to play as long as you arent going to extremes IMO

though looking at your sig, I think between us we have enough ibby knowledge to be worth listening too

i dunno... i mean if you really like it and have no intention of getting rid of it maybe consider one of the cheaper options like tonerider or irongear. but i wouldn't put any more money into it than that. if even that much, as tom and co are saying.
