    Default An ICX120 needs new pickups.....

    Yes, I know, replacing pickups in a guitar like this seems pretty ridiculous.
    But the guitar has a lot of sentimental value to me and I would like to be able to get a semi-reasonable tone out of it.

    The body wood is Basswood (Ibanez seems to like it a lot) with a bolt on maple neck, with a rosewood fretboard.

    I was thinking maybe something to the effect of a C5 in the bridge, with a 59 in the neck, typical play on PAF's, but I'm unsure of what horrors that might potentially unleash.



    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Nah. All my guitars are cheap. They all respond beautifully to new Duncans. Go for it.

    Believe me, I will.
    And thank you for the reply.

    Is that sound to be a fair combination, considering the wood, etc?

    I'm really more of a blues kinda guy, but I sometimes branch out into a bluesy metal mix.
    think Danzig, without the ceramic harmonics, or muscles. ;P

    All being said and done, I'm considering dropping in a Tonepros bridge, if that might change opinions.

    I want to avoid any potential problems, as I know some pickups can be a little upset if you put them in the wrong guitar (The JB comes to mind)

    Wait for other opinions too, but a C5/59 would be a great combo. My first Duncans, actually. Still got 'em.
