Default Need advice on some new Pickups...?

Well currently I own a Samick Royal 2.



I love the guitar, considering I didn't pay much for it slightly used. Its in factory condition with no changed parts. I am not sure on what pickups I should get to replace the below average ones currently on there.

Any advice, links, examples, would be great.

Some duncan 59's would be cool.

I would reccomend something a little less generic for a guitar like that. A set of the Dimarzio 36th anniversary PAF's would sound great in that, with great sparkle and note definition.

On the other hand, try A bluesbucker in the neck and perhaps a Norton or Air norton in the bridge.


If you really want the generic rock tone, a 59' is a great choice, but in my opinion its always been a jack of all trades master of none. It has no 'specialness' to my ears. All these pickups are Dimarzio btw, except the 59, which is a seymour duncan.


As for silver, you can order most dimarzio pickups with covers for a small upcharge, or you can simply use seperate covers.

I do like the Dimarzio 36th anniversary PAF's a lot. How much would those run me?

Same as any other set of dimarzio's, IIRC. They're a little hard to get hold of though. Get your dealer to order them in for you. The bonus with these is they're made to be used with either a vintage aged cover, or a nickel cover that was specially made to be less magnetic, so you should get great performance with covers.
