I don't venture out of the pit very much, so I'm sorry if this is a common question.

I would definitely focus on the amp first. Get that. Work on your tone. Get new pups later.

BTW - what is your current guitar/amp/gear?

new or used?

i would say amp first before pickups.
Ibanez RG321MH (Air Classic/Tone Zone)
Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
TC Electronic Nova Repeater
Lava Cables Clear Connect, Soar and Mini ELC
PICKUPS!!!! Ha, no amp. Seriously. But if you're sporting a Dumble now - maybe pick ups...
