Is it worth the trouble? Well, I guess its not much trouble but which pickup for $60 or less would sound good? I have a first-year EBMM JP with so called custom pickups that are supposed to be close to Dimarzio Steves Specials and I really like these-and Steves are not that expensive so would that be a good choice? Any advantage to going with neck pickup as a compromise? My sister has a guitar that I mess with when I visit-an white Epi LP Jr. from a lot of music store stuff that she bought to re-sell. Its signed by the Rusty Paul band. Im trying to convince her that nobody would buy that thing. Maybe Ill accidently wear the autographs off if I play it enough. It does look cool in stark white.
