If you're into Duncan pickups, this one is mega in the the bridge position of a Les Paul or similar style guitar.

Do you guys have any experience changing pick-ups? I've been thinking about changing mine for ages. I've got the original Pickups that came with my Epiphone DOT and they sound like s**t. I've been wanting to change them, but I don't want to pay some shmuck a couple hundred bucks to do something I could probably do myself.

I've always figured I need to solder, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's probably a lot simpler than that. Any ideas?

couple hundred bucks? where you taking it??

dont change it yourself if you've got a dot and no experience of changing them. DO change them, but get a pro to do it.

its a hollow body guitar, so all the wires and everything has to come out of the little f holes. its very fiddly. its not like a les paul or an sg where theres a panel on the back you can take off.

dots may cost a little more to have their pups changed but $200 is stupidly expensive.

"A couple hundred bucks" was just an estimation on my part. I was going to do it a year and a half ago, but the guy I was going to have do it told me to save my money cos he finds it usually doesn't make much of a difference. He was the guitar tech for a a couple "bigger" bands (Ash being one of them) so I figured he probably knew what he was talking about. Once you factor in the cost of new pickups and the labour I'm sure you're looking at a few hundred dollars regardless.
