As stated above, i thinking to buy a Roland Microcube. My guitar has the neck pickup kinda damaged, cause it can't handle distortion well at some frets. So, i have 30$ to spend (besides the microcube) and i don't know if the new pickups will suit me better or a EQ pedal cause the lack of it on the microcube. What do you suggest me to buy?. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure, but EQ maybe just becaus i don't know if you can really get nay decentpickup for $30. But i believe the Danelectro Fish and Chips is $30.

Pickups, but for 30 dollars youre not going to get much, I don't even think you can buy a shitty pickup for that price. Save up more and get a DiMarzio D Sonic.

meh, go with one of those danelectro eq pedals because there is no decent pickups for 30 dollars, and it will help you develope your different tones and whatnot, alot more variations in your playing stuff..

Thanks for the reply, but i have searched and for 30$ i can buy the Seymour Duncan Performer (http://www.amazon.com/Duncan-Performer-11792-0113-14Z1-Scorcher-Pickup/dp/B0002GIXEC/sr=8-1/qid=1170013753/ref=sr_1_1/002-0678560-6159255?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments) . And i'm sure those pickups at least, work (my doesn't on distortion...)

My doubt about the EQ pedal is how well can handle it the Microcube, cause is a modelling amp.

Are you sure there is a problem with the pickup? Try lowering it a bit, it might be too close to the strings.

They work fine with modelling amps, I use my MXR 10-band every now and then to make my MT-2 sound good with my Vox AD50, and it makes an MT-2 sound good, so you know its working aha.

I'm sure the pickup is damaged, i have tried anything. The pickup is very low now and have problem only with distortion on at some high frets (14,15) or th high e string. I can't hear pinch harmonics either (i can hear it even unplugged) with that pickup.

Thanks, i think i will go for the EQ pedal (Danelectro Fish $ Chips). The pickup could wait until i have more cash. Thanks again....

J/ go with an EQ. Pickup mods are not really worth it unless u start spending more cash.

If you want something that'll help your tone significantly without spending a lot then an EQ is the way to go.
