I've found this ibanez I've fell in love with, it has a nice classy look! It's an ibanez af75 hollow body:

Anyways I've been reading on them and what I've seen is that the tuners and pickups could use an upgrade, so if I was to buy this guitar what tuners should I get for it?
More importantly I love the tone in this song:

And was wondering what pickups I should buy to get this tone? I love the heavy kind of blues sound! I'd like to replace both of the pickups, they don't have to match and I don't have to replace both if I don't need to, any suggestions? Thanks!

Don't ES335's usually come with gibson's P57? That would be a pretty good choice. Or a pair of Mules (by Bareknuckle)
Scientists write papers and books. Engineers make money.

As far as tuners go, Gotoh, Sperzel, Schaller, and some others are pretty good bets. Locking helps, but is not necessary.

I'm not sure they tend to come with whatever now and days, I remember seeing one loaded with emg's (totally ruined that es-3) And I've heard of the bareknuckles, they seem alright, but do you have any others in mind for that heavy blues tone?
As for the tuners I've found locking grovers for $40 I'd probably get.

Gibson 490R and 490T, perhaps?

I've looked at those as well, also what about a pearly gates? Would it be good for blues or is it more for rock?

Warm, slightly-hotter-than-vintage humbucker. Great for blues, classic rock, southern rock, jam, and hard rock.



^Looks like it.
