I have a Yamaha Pacifica 412V which I absolutely love. I've heard that if you upgrade the pickups from the stock ones it'll sound even better. Also I wanna keep the same H-S-S configuration to have a variety of tones. What pickups do you guys recommend that I upgrade the humbuckers and single coils to? I play anything from Metallica to Chili Peppers...

what music do you play, and what amp do you have?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

mellow silent pickups like LAce sensors are really nice, something like a hot gold, gold, or blue that for the neck. would bring out the bass.

in the middle u might want a silent Virtual vintage Heavey blues from dimarzio, or a texas special, its an aggressive middle pickup that makes for a nice transition to a humbucker.

for the humbucker u might want a high output, maybe a JB (high treble) or a tone zone from dimarzio.

BUT if ur in the UK, u might want to look into BK pickups or swineshead pickups.
supposed to be very good.

also, there are alot of other high end pickups, maybe kinmans even. the ones i suggested run about $80USD each.

You are ready to spend 200 Bucks for EACH pup? Damn, Id get a Dimarzio Tone Zone for the bridge, Not too intelligent when it comes to single coils. Id just get use 80 dollars for each pup then save the rest for a new amp.

pickups wont change the tone even half as much as getting a new amp would.

if u upgrade ur amp, it will make all the difference.
