My ibanez arcore AM-73's pickups are really giving me a fuzzy tone, and i have a gig in two weeks. I know i have plenty of time to get it fixed, but i am not a very patient person. Can anyone give me advice on what to do, can i modify them or do i need new pick ups.

Ill just add that i know the fuzzy tone is coming from the pickups because i played on three different cords and amps just to make sure.

EDIT: Can you also give me some suggestions on types of new pickups.

Check the wiring, 90% of the time thats the problem. You probably have to resolder them
btw, you dont mention what kind of tone are you seeking or what tone did you have before.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.

as suggested, resoldering might fix the problem. ofter the hardware will have what is called a "cold" solder joint. Flux and resolder the joint. Use high-quality silver-bearing solder or some rosin core solder. heat to a higher temp (if you have a temp-adjust iron, if you dont, I suggest you get one such as a HAKKO 936) than you would normally for like, PCB work, as you will have a cleaner joint that way.
Go with GFS mean 90s or vintage 59s for vintage hollowbody tone.
a pair is about the same price as ONE SD pickup, and all the quality plus some.
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.
