So basically I don't know much about them or if I should even do it but I wouldn't personally put them in, I was planing on taking it to a local place. right now I have the pups that came with my guitar which are Seymour Duncan Custom-5 (B) / Jazz (N) and I was thinking some active would suit me better because I mainly play hard rock/metal but I do also play grunge. So should I get some new one's? if so please recommended or should I save my money for a new guitar? I don't need a new amp, I'm happy with my guitar rig 5 and I can't really use a amp in my house anyways because I play at night.

I think the Custom 5 and Jazz is a great versatile combo. Not really sure if actives would be right for you. You'd have to mod the guitar of course and find room for the battery. There is a thread in GBnC oh the basic wiring of this if you are interested.


What is it about your tone that you want to change?

I was just hoping to get something that picks up pinch harmonics a little better and I feel like the pups now don't work well for tapping but that's probably just me. thanks for the advice

true statement. I will admit though that pinches are easier to get out of more sensitive pickups.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
