That is the guitar.

A friend of mine bought one a little while back, and wants to put some new pickups in it.

He came to me knowing that I do alot when it comes to guitar modding

problem is... I've never dealt with soapbar pickups
and I dont know much about them....
actually, I know almost nothing about them.


and do all soapbar pickups have the screws in the middle of the pickup itself like the ones it has?


but really
what are some suggestions you people have to get a bit of a heavier sound ouf of it.

Looking at the guitar, we are obviously not looking at real high end pickups, but anything better than the stock will do.


any help is much appreciated

i HAVE seen some replacement pickups for soapbar style guitars...
i think EMG may even have a pickup.

There are many replacements for the soapbar. Some offer humbucker replacements now.

How much money do you have to spend? What amp do you have? When you have the guitar set up so both pickups are playing are they hum cancelling?
Not taking any online orders.

Dont really worry about price for right now, honestly.
If you have anything to recomend I'll listen and check it out.

The amp is going to be changing so dont really worry about that either haha.
Right now he just has some practice amp, but

and no I do not belive they are.


so does anyone have any recomendations on good soapbar pickups?
or should I just take my buddy out looking around? haha
