Im modding my jackson js20 and need some new pickups, the obvious choice is to get
emgs or seymour duncans but that would cost me like £150-£200, i was wondering if they are any good respectable pickups that are a bit cheaper??

1) what don't you like about your tone
2) what amp you got going?


they are really bad for harmonics, they are stock pickups from a js20 which is a beginner model so they arent that great. and ive only got a lil practice marshall amp at the moment but ive played it on a big tube amp and it wasnt great on that either.

If you're gonna put money into a pickup swap, why don't you buy ones that you will never need to change again? I mean if you're gonna buy budget pickups that you won't be 100% satisfyed with just because you was too stingy the last time, you'll need to upgrade sometime later again, and that will just be more expensive.

Or, as almost everyone here will tell you - save the money and buy a nicer amp.

Regardless of how much difference you thought that 'big tube amp' made, it will have made more of a sound difference than changing pickups and keeping your (ss) marshall practice amp

Though I'd highly recommend upgrading your amp first, even if it's just to a better solid state amp.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Save up for an amp, pickups aren't going to make any difference.

swineshead are nicer than any duncans or dimarzios i've tried (i haven't tried them all) and are only 2/3 the price (based on UK prices).

I have a set, and they kick ass.

new amp would also be worth considering as a priority, as has already been said.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
