Don't bother spending money on swapping pickups. Try my magnet swapping mod. Turns the V series humbuckers into seriously good pickups! To to my blog http://www.lonephantom.com and check out the DIY section.

I looked at the pickups to see if i could have a go at the magnet swap but theres a lot if wax in there and i didn't want to disturb it too much.
Are there 2 magnets in there ?

Will do. Many thanks.

Now that is a great mod. Done in about 20 minutes with a good clean too. Sounds awesome. Many thanks LonePhantom.
