1) what amp are you using
2) what don't you like about the pickups that you have now
3) which ones do you have a problem with
4) what's your budget
5) what's your location
6) will you buy new or used

Well it kind of does matter unless you're happy overpaying.


Well what's the exact sound you're looking to get? What patches are you using in Guitar Rig as well? Like post some examples or whatever or list some neck sounds you like so we can help a bit more.


Is the pickup not clear enough? not enough gain? too shrill etc...

I try to get slash's sound, tried a couple of presents but still it doesn't sounds well
+ not much sustain

Well the presets within GR arent the best. Have you tried making custom ones? Theres probably a ton of GNR and Slash presets that other people have made that might interest you.

Slash uses Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro IIs. But those are humbuckers. Theyre gonna be a bit different compared to single coils

i'm not really thinking that a pup change is what you want. hven't played through GR but since it's modeling they often don't really see pickups all that differently. i'm kinda thinking tinkering with the eq etc will do you more good. also keep in mind that something like that just plain won't make you sound just like slash.
