Alright all terrible jokes/puns as-side. Peavey Tomb 1 Electric Guitar http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/peavey-pxd-tomb-i-electric-guitar/518625000974738 and I am playing through a Peavey Triumph 60, it is a tube combo amp. I want to change the pickups because I want to get rid of these active pick-ups. I wanted at first to get the 57 classics but I've heard from some people that they are quite muddy, the sound Im going for is a good amount of mid on clean and some good bass on dirty. This all quite general but what would you reccomend?

Can you name just a few bands that would capture this tone? Because "good amount" and "some good" are subjective, and a good amount of mid may be different to you than it is to me.

I love Streetlight Manifesto's clean, Thomas Kalnoky is the guitar player. His distortion im not sure what he uses as a pedal, but I like that also.

How much are you going to spend?
What styles have you looked at?
What style do you play? I'm guessing metal.

I will spend what ever I need to I have to save the money anyway.

No longer into Metal, but I love the feel of the guitar itself. I play blues rock r&b jazz and ska, kinda versatile.

Youre probably not going to get that tone with that guitar.

He has a semi hollow es335 that gives him the warm tone

I think you might be talking about this tone, im not sure. post some sound samples man

I would go with GFS. I wouldnt spend the cash on gibson pickups unless It was my job to record songs. But his amp helps a LOT with the tone also. He has a Mesa head I believe.
So theres that

gonna be allot of work to switch from active to passive
volume and tone pots need to be replaced
as does the jack

GFS, Tonerider and, if you are in the UK, IronGear are the way to go for money. Tonerider and IronGear will take on Seymour and DiMarzio happily. I can't speak for GFS, though from what I hear they're the same kind of value.

But the above poster is right. Switching from active to passive or vice versa is a lot of work.
