Is it worth upgrading Squier Jazzmaster pickups?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This looks like a great forum! I recently bought a Squier Classic Vibe Jazzmaster. I have not bought a new guitar in perhaps 15 years and was amazed at the quality for a cheap instrument. My friend gave me some American Vintage 65 Jazzmaster pickups he had lying about to upgrade however I have to say I quite like the stock pickups.

My question is just are AV65 pickups significantly better quality and will I find a distinct tonal difference or should I just stick with the stock ones? If I had not got the AVs I would be happy with the stock ones but of course now I am intrigued to see if there is a difference! If I soldered I would do it myself and see what I prefered but I don't so deciding if worth the money and time to get someone to do it.

Btw I play jazzy blues stuff like T-Bone Walker and some surfy stuff.

Thanks in advance!
