Is it worth replacing them with some better quality ones? I've never done anything with pick ups before, but i'm a real tone freak and i'm starting to recognise crappy sounds and i'm constantly trying to fix them.
What guitar is it and what amp are you using?
ibanez arx 320 with a marshall bi chorus 200
I have had a few ibanez's and the pickups really varied with each guitar, with my ICX120 it was alright, but could use a replacement. On my RG2020 it had the V7 and V8 and they sounded great. and on my current one i only have a stock neck humbucker (bridge is a JB) and it sounds pretty good for a fat clean sound.
