Hello, I'm thinking about replacing my pick-ups and would like a piece of advice from you guys. My bass is an Ibanez GSR200, with standard pups I'm a total noob concerning pick-ups. I know for a fact that the original GSR200 pickups are a jazz pick-up near the fretboard and a presicion pick-up near the bridge. Here come the questions: Are all Jazzpickups in the "double, half pickpup shape"? To illustrate the question here is a schematic drawing of how they look like this: _________________ | | | O O O O | |_________________| _________________ | | | O O O O | |________________| (argh, it doesn't show my drawing correctly. It basically comes down to this: A normal pickup "sliced" in two, then placed underneath each other, halfway through the half pickup.) The music I play with my band is doom/traditional/heavy metal; what would be the best choice of pickups to get a sharp, agressive sound that goes well with distortion? Are there faq's on how to replace P-ups, and where can I find them? Thats all for the questions for now, I hope I'm not boring you with my noobquestions and crappy ansidrawings of pickups, and any help is superbly appreciated.
