Hey gang, I'm new to the forum and a beginner guitar player looking to make my first adjustment to my Cort M600 (2007). My guitar came with the stock EMG HZ humbuckers but I'm unhappy with the sound. I'm looking to replace the pickups with something that'll give me more of a vintage blues/classic rock sound (think B.B. King). After consulting with both the fine people at Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio, they recommended me the SD '59 (bridge/neck set) and the Air Classic (bridge/neck set). '
Now I'm looking for some input from the forum. I've read a lot of good things about the SD '59 and mostly positive things about the Air Classics. Nevertheless, I want to know what the people here think about it. Do you recommend I get either one of these sets? Do you recommend I get either a '59 or Air Classic in combination with something else? Alternatives in general? Any comments are welcome.
Please keep in mind that this will be the first time I'm changing pickups on a guitar. I'm not going to do any major remodelling or install wiring for an active pickup.
Any comments are welcome!
