Yes, yet another thread where you tell a person how to spend their money. Anyway, I'm currently saving up for an HD Pro. A couple months ago I realized I didn't have a six string with humbuckers (as my single coil six doesn't sound very good), and my seven obviously does have HBs but doesn't sound all that amazing. Therefore I decided that before I get the POD I'd want a nice sounding guitar to play through it right when I got it, rather than getting the POD and not knowing it's true potential due to a not-so-great sounding seven. The guitar I got sounds alright, but I think could be even better if I had the pickups swapped. However, I've been GASing for this POD for a while now. My friend says "My advice is to get the pups before. That's the best thing for your tone, although the POD will help a ton." TL;DR- My question: Would it be best to get the pickups swapped now and wait to get the HD Pro, or could the pup swap wait while the POD could handle the majority of the tone? Thanks in advance for any advice.
