    Default Vester SFT-70A

    Hi im new and im looking to upgrade my guitar. My guitar is currently a Vester SFT-70A and while it feels pretty good to play on the pickups are a bit on the dodgy side.

    Does anyone know what sort of pickups i can put into the guitar? Im looking at getting an Invader humbucker and then when i get more cash getting two single coils for the neck and the middle, but how do i know if they will fit? I dont want to have to cut the guitar to make them fit...

    I cant find any information on my guitar because vester doesnt exist anymore, so if any of you know anything that could help me please say something!

    welcome to the forum!!

    from the look of it, two singles and a humbucker should fit as long as you get single coils that dont have the flange on the bottom.

    if you look at the pick of the vintage staggered it has the flange
    the hot doesnt.

    what type of tone are you going for?

    I've seen some of those Vester guitars here in South Africa. I'd say you should listen to the tone chart clips on the SD site, and decide what kind of sound you're after. Then get a pickup to match. Humbucker in the bridge is fairly popular, singles for neck. Mostly guys upgrade the bridge first. As i remember the Vester was fairly inexpensive, so the quality difference from stock to SeyDunc is going to be really really major. Enjoy...

    Mind you the Vesters i saw were not as "high end" as that - ie the Floyd Rose style trem and the EMG-ish style pickups. But still SD will help alot

    I had a vester once , a lefty

    put in a hum from dimarzio (metal humbucker) I didn´t knew SD at that time ;-(

    Bought from a friend 2 original strat coils , put them in and it worked fine at that time for me .

    But after a year with a lot of gigs the guitar was just trash ...

    Yeah the reason im looking at getting a pair of SDs into my guitar is because as you say, it has the floyd rose style tremolo, and the neck feels pretty good too. Its just the pickups that need a rehaul...

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think i might get an Invader in the bridge and see how i go, im trying to get a good metal sound so that seems to fit.

    Is there a simple explanation as to why i might want active as opposed to passive pickups?
