yeah, we need your style of music, and if your pickups are mounted into the guitar, then you will have to buy humbuckers, if they are on a scratchplate then you could look for a scratchplate for singles

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

thats ^ it right? Very interesting pickups. That thing may be a pain to re-wire.

When you say the pickups are dieing, what do you mean? Pickups don't usually just quit working, you may have another wiring problem. Get a tech to check it out before spending money on pickups.

FWIW that guitar would be easy to replace pups on. Semi-hollow so they mount with rings to the body, cake.

Before I could recommend any pickup I need to know what music you play and through what amp.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

I doubt the pickups are dieing...it's more likely to be a dodgy wire or connection. A pair of Duncan Seth Lovers would be nice if you fancy a change though.
