I recently put out a forum about pickups and here is what i was told to get

Bridge position- Seymour Duncan TB-11
http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/pickups_sdtrembuckertb11.htm


Neck Position- Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59
http://www.guitarpartsresource.com/pickups_sdhumsh1.htm

But...I have been getting into alot of buckethead, will those sound good on my jagmaster for his style? It's kind of a stupid question but i'm not good with pickups and all that. Give me some suggestions too please!

As long as you have humbuckers, you can get near a buckethead tone with the right amp. That being said, Buckethead uses different amps all the bloody time, so a "Buckethead Tone" is kinda a funny thing to aim for.

Try this: Take your Ashdown, try it with some OD's, see what happens. I think adding an OD to your amp will get you where you want to go faster than a pickup swap.

Iv'e tried it. My guitar sounds like crap though cause my pickups are stock. I want better ones.

Oh nutsack, I thought you had a Fender Jagstang, not a Squier Jagmaster. I'm silly. Squier buckers are worth replacing.

Yea, anyway. Shoot for almost any PAF style pup. How much are you looking to spend?

Probably under $200, There is a guitar store near my house going out of business so I can get a great deal for both pups

That kind of money gets you a nice set of SD's. I'd check out their site for more ideas, or wait for someone better versed in SD pups to see this thread that I keep bumping.

I'd take it, but I'm notoriously uncaring about specific models of pickup.

Well i found out Buckethead tends to use DiMarzio pups, Would this be a good combo for my Jagmaster?

Neck- DiMarzio Air Norton
Bridge- DiMarzio Tone Zone

These Rockfields would be a good fit. They will save you a little money, and they are absolutely awesome.


are they good for buckethead type stuff?

Their are a PAF style pickup, which usually the type bucket uses (i believe). They are great pickups, though and would get you closer his tone than your stock pickups. I'm not too familiar with your amp, though. When I think ashdown, I think bass amps. A new amp will improve your tone way more than new pickups, even if you do have stock squier pickups.

yeh i am not getting a new amp i just bought this amp and i love it. I have my amp set to his style and its pretty good, pickups will clean the sound and hums up a bit.

Well, you can't really go wrong with most Seymour Duncans, DiMarzios, and Rockfields. I'm mainly biased towards the Rockfields because they are cheaper. SD pearly gates, and DiMarzio PAF Pro are both good options too.

alrite thanks, i think the rockfeilds, and the combo i thought of with the dimarzios are good
