I apologise, because i am sure this forum gets filled with posts like this.

My guitar-

Should i upgrade the pickups?

I get very little response from my volume/tone controls, I really don't know anything technical about guitars, but if these are cheap ones, perhaps i would benefit from some upmarket ones???

thanks


edit - i dont think the link works, but it is a standard Epi SG 400 Custom as on the Epi site.

i don't use an amp
I generally play through headphones using my ZOOM pocket pro recorder / effects.


edit - also, the humbuckers currently in the guitar are apparently - 'Alnico Classic Plus' are they any good?

To be honest, unless you feel that the pickups are specifically lacking something (clarity etc), then changing them won't make a great deal of difference with that rig.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

well if you are hearing yourself through headphones then it really doesnt matter..if you later get a good amp, then maybe.

You might want to consider changing the pots; the ones that Epiphone uses are markedly worthless.
