    I've got an Ibanez GSR200 and I want to replace the pickups.

    I think ANYTHING would be better than the stock pickups, so what kinda do you think I should put in it? I really dont want active pickups cuz I would have to rout out a battery box hole and i'm not very experianced with a router.

    So, any good Passive P & J pickups I could check out to put in it?

    For your style, I'd guess a S/D ¼-Pounder for the P and
    a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz or S/D Hot Stack for the J. There
    may be some tweakin' with pot values to compensate
    for differences in output if ya' mix two brands though.

    There IS the DiMarzio DP126 P+J set for ~ $90 at M/F ...
    Consider the cost of the `200 to begin with ;). That S/D
    combo would be ~ $140 at Warmoth .

    To me, your name doesnt scream "jazz with a tinge of country", but thats just me. :D

    Cant go wrong with the seymour duncans, but this mod is still pretty expensive for such a cheap bass. You might just want to save your money and get a new bass.

    go with a Sadowsky P/J Set. They are passive and sound great. For $150 you can´t go wrong with them!

    Of course, they would sound even better with the Sadowsky Onboard Preamp but I guess that you

    a) Don´t want to ship your bass to Roger
    b) Don`t have an extra $350
