What style of music do you play? We can't really help you until you tell us what type of music you play.

fuck off. it's people like you who allow duncan to manufacture a (in many cases) mediocre product and still make tons of money.

Maybe the Dimebucker and the Invader, I wouldn't say teh '59 or custom custom I have are particularly mediocre. I did get them as stock though.

that's why i said "in many cases", i wanted to keep myself right, lol.

you're right, those are two of the better ones, i have a '59 in my edwards and it's a nice pickup (but like yours, it came stock, i wouldn't pay UK RRP for one when i could get e.g. a bareknuckle instead for very little more).

wouldn't suggest doing it yourself then. It won't be too expensive to have them installed anyways

^that or find some extra wires and metal objects to practice solder... Soldering is a very helpful skill someother important skills you might also want to learn is wiring in general... Possibly routing but the later probably won't be much of an issue

agreed. if you're only doing it once, it's probably not worth the bother. but if you think you might change pickups a lot in the future, it might be worth buying a soldering iron and a few wires and, for example, a cheap switch or something and practice on that a lot. don't do it with the pickups first, lol, you want to practice on a cheap electronic component.

how much does it cost to get them installed?
#32
depends on the shop, but it shouldn't be that much. especially if you're buying the pickups from the shop, you should try to bargain them down a bit.
