I've got a Schecter Demon 6 (no FR) with active "Duncan Designed" pickups.. I also have a cheap guitar with stock passive, I like the feel of the guitar, but the pickups could be better.. either of them could do with an upgrade.. I recently discovered that I like the neck position for rythm.. And I think I'm more into passives.. :S Though I don't know how to install a passive pup in an active guitar.. Is there a good pickup in under 100? I found a used SH-13 Dimebucker for 50.. Thinking on getting that.. if it can be used in the neck.. I play mostly downtuned metal/alternative.. Any advice to give? Do tell!
