Difference between Ibanez PSND and STSD pickups? Help!
EDIT: SORRY FOR THE TITLE, ERROR, I KNOW IT'S STDS PICKUPS LOL, can't seem to edit threat title....
Hello, need some help here since I am totally unfamiliar with Ibanez and it's hardware including pickups. I've been looking at Ibanez grg140 models (edit: tried to enter link to official site but it won't let me, don't have 10 posts...)
And the site says all 3 models have Infinity RS pickups but the guitar shops state differently. I wanted to buy the white model but somebody said the SB model is newer and has better pickups. The white model has PSND pickups and SB has STDS (and STDH humbucker). Now I've read that PSND are Ibanez stock pickups and the worst of the bunch but I've read the same about STDS. Btw pretty much every guitar shop has this info on pickups so I don't get it, are STDS infinity or is Ibanez not correct on their site?
The SB model is more expensive (also because it has a mahogany body, though I don't know how much difference that will make on these cheap GIO models so if anyone could chime in on this too I'd appreciate it, so I don't open two topics) but I'm wondering if there is enough difference in pickups to justify the extra 30$ ??
Hope someone can answer these/has some experience with these pickups/guitars. And please no ''buy this more expensive model instead'' or ''replace the pickups'', my budget already went on a multi-fx pedalboard and a Vintage VS6 (Gibson SG copy) which sounds great with Wilkinson pick-ups but I need a (super)Strat style as well as it suits my playing more and these GRG models are just in the budget limit. I doubt I'll find better ones in the price range...
