Hey there I'm thinking about getting a new pickup as you probably guessed and was hoping for some useful pointers. I recently got a new amp (a Marshall JTM30) which sounds very nice but now I think that my guitar is sounding a little naff. It's an Aria STG-004 http://www.ariausa.com/series/stg004/stg004.htmlI was thinking about possibly getting a new guitar which could still be an option but i hope to be building my own in the not to distant future at Bailey Guitars http://www.baileyguitars.co.uk
so I don't want to spend more the £500 at the very most. So I listened to a load of the soundclips on the SD site and narrowed it down to the APH-1 Alnico II Pro, SH-12 Screamin' Demon, SH-6 Duncan Distortion, SH-PG1 Pearly Gates or possibly the LW-HMET1 Live Wire Heavy Metal. Quite a list I know but what would people recommend for playing stuff from Rock to Heavy Metal. I like playing Guns 'n' Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden that sort of thing.
