My guitar has a basswood body(probably because some sites say other wise). Its a peavey raptor plus EXP. Its kind of a cheap guitar but please, dont say its not worth changing pickups because im kind of cheap and I pretty much already like the sound I currently have I just want something better. What pickups would you guys suggest for a H/S/S guitar? I want one single coil pickups for blues and cleans and a humbucker for classic rock to metal. Lets keep the price under $180.

Thanks.

I really like the sound of EMG's in basswood.....but that's only if YOU like the EMG tone.

The JB is an ok pickup, but can be uber trebly.

My favorite are the PRS Tremonti pickups.....the bridge pup in particular is amazing. Pricey though.

Which EMG would you suggest. I want passive ones BTW.

passive emgs... no. stay away from their passives. SD's are good stuff. I think a JB would be good, maybe some duncan cool or vintage rails for the single coils.

JB in basswood= uber treble

You want a pickups with good low end. IE Tone Zone.
