At this point I will likely be keeping the guitar - I think the cheaper option to look into is to look into upgrading pickups though the stock pickups are not bad by any means. I was thinking of either an Illuminator set or Dactivator set, but I was curious what you guys would suggest. I have the JP70 tuned low to high Ab-Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb, for this band I rarely use the lowest string unless it's for super low chuggy stuff. I've posted clips of the bands songs below so you can get an idea context of the band/songs (I am not posting them for shameless plugs, I honestly want people to have a reference for the context of the sounds I'd be working with). Any help is much appreciated!
