For the price I can afford, and after doing a little research here are the options I have with a couple different brands of pickups. Please Vote and leave comments...I'm leaning towards a certain brand but still kinda hung up on what to do with the pickups.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

About 200 bucks...I've already spent about $20 on a good soldering iron and the correct solder.

I figure I can get about $80 to $90 out of the noiseless vintage that will be coming out.

So around $250 to $260 give or take for both sets.

Give CorduroyEW a PM. A set of single coils is about $180. Get a set for one guitar, then wait patiently until you have enough for more. That is assuming your completely satisfied with your amp, because you should get that first.

I just spent about 100 bucks having my Blues Jr. done over. It sounds amazing.

All tubes were replaced and the circuit board (what the shop tech told me) was broken on one end, like the amp had been dropped (i bought it used). So he put a new one in and replaced all the tubes for $100 and a little change. The new tubes in it give a much punchier sound. Still clean but the presence is better.

sweet.


The stock groove tubes are no longer in the amp, to clarify. I forget the brand name, I'll take a look at them tomorrow.

oh yea. u said 250ish for both sets. i'd want the '93 strat to get the rockmonkeygutiars pickups. and the '04 some hot GFS pickups. it would be pretty cool.

but i pick the first option out of that.
