I have a Gibson faded SG. currently using the default 490 pickups. I play mostly soloing and classic rock. What would be some better pickups to use for less than 100$?
for less than $100 you won't find much. Check out Kent Armstrong or Swineshead.
Ok thanks, I was thinking of getting the classic '57s perhaps. Anyone know if they play good?
You could check out Golden Age pickups from stewmac. They are pretty decent for the price.
