    switching out the pickup in my ibanez srx400? I'm not sure if it would sound enough better to upgrade or not, mostly because I'm not sure how much a good, quality pickup should cost me and also because i'm not quite sure how the stock pickup stacks up to EMGs and the sort. Anybody have any input?

    Also, if i did, should i also get a new preamp?

    I had a sr400 Ibanez for 6 weeks and sold it because the pups sucked. the bass had no character and just sounded bland. The pre-amp didn't seem to be the problem but I'm not sure a pup change alone would help that bass.

    well, this isn't the sr400 though, the srx has got a lot more kick to it than the sr does
