JS100 Pickup Suggestions?
Hi all, I recently got a JS100 (basswood, locking trem in case anyone didn't know) and I really love how it plays, looks, feels, etc, but the pickups are just so dull and lifeless without any feel to them. I'm looking at a plethora of new pickups, and I'm leaning towards Dimarzio's, but I'm open to suggestions, and please try to make those suggestions under $90 or so (I unfortunately can't afford BareKnuckle's) and it would be preferable if they were available at Guitar Center because I have credit there. I play a variety of music, but it tends to center around a Relient K, Switchfoot, Boston, Scorpions, All American Rejects, so it's alternative/rock/alternative-punk/ classic rock sort of thing. I need crunch, but also smoothness, but also harmonics for solos. I also need at least one of the pickups to be able to clean up really well with smooth/ glassy cleans for church worship music. I want fullness because I can't stand pickups that are too thin/ tinny/ overly trebly, but I also don't want a thundering bass-y pickup. It basically needs to be a versatile pickup set, because I basically play everything except jazz/ blues or heavy metal/ thrash. I usually don't play with both pickups at the same time ( iddle of the pickup switch) so they can be very opposite pickups as long as one isn't noticeably louder than the other when I switch pickups. I know this seems like a really specific (and possibly impossible) request, but if anyone can help me out.
