Well I'm not exactly new to guitar playing but I'm very new to hardware. I'm planning on upgrading pickups for my two electric guitars, an Ibanez RG2550 with prestige neck and a PRS Soapbar SE II. I have stock pickups on both guitars. For the RG I'm thinking of getting just a new bridge pickup that's hotter but not overly so and nothing that will sacrifice my tone. As for the PRS I'm looking for something with a bit of that tele sound I can't really describe. And a bit more output. Anything is better than the stock pickups really. I'm guessing this has been really non-specific but at least giving me some starting points for me to do my research would be nice.
