Hey everyone, So I am planning on getting a new bass. Most likely the Ibanez SR500, I will be upgrading from the Ibanez Gio ($199) starter bass. The size of the neck and body is about the same so I was wondering, would I be better spending a lot of money on good pickups and have them installed in the old bass? Or would it be worth it to buy the new SR500? If I could get great sound just by upgrading the pickups, then I am all for that as I don't mind the body of the Gio, but the sound with current pickups is horrible compared to SR500.
