Steinberger GR4 pickup upgrade

texas special

Recommended Posts

hi, I would like to replace the pickups installed in my 1992 GR4 with an Evans HSS Hot Lead and Hot Rhythm set that I found used online and I am thinking of buying: before I disassemble everything and buy the set I would like to understand if these pickups will sound good on the guitar  which should have a maple body and graphite neck ... has anyone had experience and can help me figure out if it will improve my current sound?  Thanks for the reply!

I just bought a used 1991 GR4 in Black and some one replaced the original 

Seymour Duncan pickups with EMG81 in the bridge and S/A S/A in the middle

and neck. I don't like EMG pickups they are (Junk) so now I bought the Seymour

Duncan Humbucker for the neck and Hot Rails for the middle and neck. I just

don't understand why anyone would put EMG's in a GR4.
