save a little more until you can get either a used line 6 flextone or either a new roland cube 60w or new vox valvetronix 50w(if you want a brit voiced amp).

Amp. New pickups won't make any difference through your amp, seeing as how it sucks.

yep. Also, before you get new pickups try removing the covers. They sap a LOT of treble out.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

are you serious?

^ Yeah the covered pickups dull down the sound. If you were thinking about changing them anyway then its not a big deal to just pull off the covers. My opinion is save for a better amp. For strictly practice Roland amps are really nice. Any of the cubes specially the micro cube because of its small size. (just got one love it) If you want a little more I hear good things about the crate tube amps. However I hear the cleans aren't the greatest on those things. Vox Valvetronixs aren't too bad either for cheap amps. If you ever have money to blow. ANY all tube Marshall=sex. You wont know the difference until you compare the two ( I had a mg 50 then was tempted to buy something else. I saved up and got a used all tube marshall like 2 weeks ago for like 500$ Its awesome.) mgs are letdowns.

So basically try ripping off your pickup covers. and get a new amp.

Simple. Pull them out, use a flat-edge and pry them off. They only glue them on there. You don't have to De-solder them and take them all the way out or anything. Just pull them out of the pickup cavity.

Yeah taking off your string would help. Just completely unscrew the pickups then they should just pop out. However if you do this your going to have to set the pickups again. http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/aph.htm read this. However their leaving out the rule that I remember hearing. That you should play the harmonic on the 12th fret (rest your finger right over the metal of the 12th fret without pushing down) and then play the 12th fret like regular. If one sound lower then the other raise the pickup, if the sound is higher then lower it.

It sounds like you are not gigging anytime soon so why not get a little five watt all tube combo like the Epi Valve jr or a fender champ. Try a few out. See what you like the best.

shut up and yea i am turning 16 and yes i am getting a job.

I hear their pretty good. However most people that get them that are actually satisfied with them are only satisfied after replacing the tubes and speaker. I don't know though. Try them out. Look at all the small cheap tube amps and you might want to look at a distortion pedal to go with that because those small amps don't usually have any distortion. The v18 is only 1 channel so...
