I bought an hamer sfx2 lately, its been 4 years and the finish is still the same since i bought it no damage at all. It was my first guitar and i cant let go of it, recently im planning to sell lt but my love on it and the sentimental value that i cant let go so i just kept it. Since, then im planning to change the pups on the bridge to make it lovable to play. is this possible? Is it changeable? How can i change it im new on this?

I looked up the guitar and it seems like it would be like changing the pickups in most guitars. The problem is, do you know anything about guitar wiring, how to install and take out pickups, hook them up properly, etc?

If you are just changing one pickup, guitar shops will usually do the installation for 10-15 dollars per pickup, which is great if you have no idea what you are doing.

if you can use a soldering iron, once you find the correct color codes for the guitar, and get the pickup in, it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

since i doubt you could identify the wires by where they are going, you will really want to look up the manufacture color codes.

i have no idea what it costs to get it done, probably $20 or so, but i do my own work so i really didn't know.

That is the problem im new on this situation, i dont kn0w how to change pups. Is there a website that teaches how to change pups? Unfortunately there are no guitar store or technician i kn0w that can change the pups for me. Guitarists here aren't aware of this cause they are stuck with stock pups.

Any music store should be able to change your pickups, or they can direct you somewhere close. Guitar center does it, but I don't know if there is one near you. Do you have any music stores near you? It doesn't have to be a guitar store, I know of music shops (the kind that sells only instruments for kids who are joining the school band) that will change them out. If you have no idea what you are doing, and you don't have any experience with wiring, and you don't know anyone who has done it, it would be worth making a drive to get it done.

But if you want to do it, here are some places to get you started

You will need the tools listed in the article/video. Also keep in mind, wiring is different depending on your volume knob/tone knob set up.
