I've got an old Ibanez that's really nice to play, but the pickups are pants so I'm gnona swap them out. However, due to buying too much stuff recently I don't fancy shelling out loads on a nice new set but I've got a JB and Jazz lying round which I could use.

First of all, as I don't really play any metal/shred stuff then an Ibanez is kinda out of character anyway, but is it weird putting in those pickups into an Ibanez? That type of guitar seems to fit the EMG sound more, but I suppose you can put anything into any guitar you want. I'm a little worried it's a false economy and I'll end up swaping them out again at a later date and buy a proper set that fits.

Also, if I put the JB and Jazz in, any recommendations for a single coil for the middle which would go with them?

If the jazz and jb are what tone you want then it should work fine.

Those are great versatile pickups and would go well in any type of axe, imo.

As for a single coil to go in there, you could try the Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro II.
