I have a crappy epiphone sg ehh 400? i think. but i hate the pick ups so i was wondering both wat pick ups to buy and how hard is it to put them in?

I play mostly rock a little metal if that matters

just to let you know, a g-400 isn't that bad.
and what do you mean by "i think." do you think maybe you have a trumpet on your hands?

Seriously, learn how to write first. Then I'll help you.


if your not going to help why even post in the thread...


anyways op, installing pickups is not hard. just make sure to clean off the old solder when you take out the old pickups and follow the wiring diagram thats included with the new pickups if you dont know what you're doing. if the included wiring diagram sucks, then seymour duncan has a wide selection that should help. also, try and be as clean as possible. take your time if need be


what tone are you looking for? metal and rock are very broad terms

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

thank you so you think i could do it having no expierence? i like to play clean sometimes with some reverb. But i also like heavy distortion. does that help?
#6
Changing pickups isnt too difficutlt as long as you own/have access to a soldering iron.
As for pickups, if you like metal and want a clean, try the Seymour Duncan JB at the bridge, Jazz at the neck. They're both passives, so you dont need to worry about fixing up a battery clip inside the guitar.

Hope this helped.

Get a new amp first.

Amp = Good tone
Pickups = Make good tone better

Unless of course you already have a good amp.

i agree with the new amp option. but seeing you want pickups, try Seymour Duncan Custom 5 in bridge and 59 in neck.
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

^ That is a good suggestion. Pretty versatile.

Just think of it like this:

If an amp is a brand new engine, the pickups are like, the exhaust, in terms of performance.

Amp (engine) will do the most, and putting in new pickups (exhaust) will enhance something that is already good.
