Re: JEM77VBK owner needs help in PUP upgrade.
Basically, what we are all saying is that a pickup change is a big difference,,,,,,,,and you have one great guitar (77Vbk). Have fun with this and find what you want to install, you'll definitely be keeping your JEM !!!!
To give you a little history on my experience with this.........when I got my RG1420F guitars with the Ibanez pickups, I was not too impressed with the sound. After installing a tone zone bridge and air norton neck pickup in each, they just sing! Same experience with my 3120F ANT - came with dimarzio IBZ pickups. Took it to a band practice when I first got it, and the bridge pickup just seemed to lack the harmonics and response I was used to. Put a pair of EVOS in it, and it totally changed into a harmonic rich tone monster. Now, if I go to get a new guitar some day, I don't even worry much about what pickups are in it. Yes, it is nice to get a guitar that already has what you want installed, but I know from experience what a pickup change can do.
