i have a quick question for people who have experience with ibanez guitars.
does anyone else find the stock pickups slightly lacking in the high gain section?
i've always wondered this, because its been the same on 3 different ibanezs ive used.

i also see a lot of people recommending pickup changes when people are asking about buying a new ibanez, is this because the pickups are relatively low in the high gain section, or are they just sort of poor quality?

thanks in advance

Yeah, Ibanez's stock pickups are usually mid-gain. Think DiMarzio PAF Pro, although without all of the good tone and clarity. So, to answer your question, it's both.
