I recently bought a Squier JagMaster.. The feedback is very grainy. It came with a pair of "Duncan Designed" pickups. I'm assuming these pickups are crap.. Does anyone have any advice on substitute pickups?
What amp are you playing through? It's more likely the amp than the pickups.

I own a Jagmaster, and it sounds great. Either you got a dud, or your amp is messed up. Check your cable for tears too - that can create a crackly noise.

I'm using a fender frontman amp :/ my cables are all brand new

That's a terrible amp.

What do you mean 'the feedback is grainy?'
That amp is horrible. I would hold off on any judgement of your pickups until you play the guitar through a better amp.
