alright so i'm getting a new vox amp and a few pedals and i was wondering if there was a good way to upgrade my ibanez rg120.

i've blocked off the bridge cause the tremelo would make it go horridly out of tune.

i was thinking about putting emgs in it but i was just wondering if there was a way i could maybe put a new bridge on it? like a fixed bridge...

i don't think there is but i'm still sort of new to upgrading guitars.

thanks for all help in advance

If you already have the trem blocked, you should be fine. The next thing to worry about it getting some good pickups. What styles do you play, and what's your budget?
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Sorry for such a late reply my internet has been quite crazy over the past few days.

And i was looking to spend as much as 200-250 on pickups.

and i play like metal-hardcore and shred stuff but i also play some clean stuff as well.

so some bands would be

As I Lay Dying, The Devil Wears Prada, August Burns Red, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani.

Pretty much stuff like that. but i would love some pickups that were also good for cleans.

Thanks!

^ no offense but i failed to see a single metal band in there...

not like it matters.

EMG's don't mix well wtih basswood i hear, and from reliable sources, so i wouldn't suggest emgs, even if i do love mine so. have you ever heard of BKP or swines head pick ups?

they're based in the UK but they make pickups that go really well with basswood bodied guitars like your ibanez. i'm not as up to date with models as i should be, but if you pm Dave_Mc he has a set of swines heads in one of his ibanez guitars. i know the bareknuckle (bkp) miracle man is their most "metal" oriented pickup.
