Right now I have an Ibanez GSR100 Bass guitar. It's pretty much the cheapest Ibanez bass there is. I love the feel and shape of the guitar but I have to say its sound is really really really flat sounding. If I bought some really nice pickups would it sound as good as the more expensive guitars? I don't really want to spend the money on a brand new guitar and was wondering if just changing the pickups would give it a nice sound if I got good pickups?

It would sound better yes.

But the woods and body of a guitar are important to the sound and sustain of the instrument.

But it is a good option if you do'nt have much money, it'll be cheaper. Just make sure, you hold onto the old pick-ups so if you decide to sell it at a later date, you can keep your new better ones. (y)
