Yeah, so this is my guitar. It's not much, but I'm a beginner and I'm happy and coming along well. I don't know much about the technicalities of an electric guitar. I don't care whether my truss rod is dry, wet or whether I should be taking it into my shower. I don't know much about pick-ups either. So a few days ago, and old friend came over to jam. He told me my guitar was pretty good, but the pick-ups suck. don't really understand. So I'm thinking of upgrading my pickups......


According to the Ibanez site, the pickups on my guitar are,

neck pu STD-H1 (H) neck pu
middle pu STD-S4 (S) mid pu
bridge pu STD-H2 (H) bridge pu

If my pickups do suck, which ones should I go for, budget ranges till 120$.


Help?

Well, i don't like my rod to be to dry for obvious reasons. How do they sound to you, if you cant tell the difference in your pickups, I recommend you don't change them until you really need too.

Well, for right now I would keep them stock, but If i owned a Jcm like your friend I would probably change them, but for now I wouldn't.

Musical ear has nothing to do with it artrard, musical ear has to do with notes not tone.
