I'm looking to upgrade the stock pickups in my ibanez rg8
Bare Knuckle pickups
I'm in UK, hit me up with what you've got. No actives
Dude, your post is very vague. Aside from passive pickups, you have not conveyed any other piece of information that might help others point you in a direction that could help you determine what pickups you might want.
My suggestion is to look for pickup comparison videos on youtube and see what pickups sound good to you. Once you have narrowed down a few choices, then come back and ask for peoples suggestions and experiences with the pickups you've selected.
