    Hello!! I am new to the board and I am just starting my first build. It's a Chinese DIY from amazon with Poplar wood body, , Maple neck & Kabuki wood fretboard. Been reading up as much as possible and hope to start prep & finish on the body soon. I know the stock pickups are not going to be great, what would you recommend for an upgrades.

    Welcome. I would start by seeking out the services of member Rob Distefano of Cavalier Puckups. You’d be hard pressed to find a better pickup at any price let alone the fair price he offers. He will listen to your concerns and offer the best pickups for your needs. Good luck.

    Hi and welcome.
    People seem to like GFS pickups.
    They won't break the bank either.

    Welcome and good luck on that build - I really should try something like that at some point.

    As mentioned above, Cavalier pickups are awesome. Heard good things about GFS. Wonderful vintage sound from Classic Vibe pickups if you can find them (Toneriders).
