I'm looking for magnet suggestions for a pair of humbuckers. The pickups will be going in a solid Korina guitar, a Futura (copy) to be exact. Pots and cap have already been upgraded. I've had a lot of suggestions for A2 neck, and A4 bridge and several for A4 in both positions. I'm hoping to get this right the 1st time. If not, I'm up for swapping magnets, no problems there, just looking to build a consensus. I don't know what's in there now but I don't like 'em so they're coming out. The guitar is a Bacchus Korina Futura. A very well made guitar but like a lot of Japanese guitars, the electronics and pups leave a lot to be desired. So, help me out guys, please!!

Honestly they are cheap enough. Buy a few and experiment, make up yer own mind.

Magnets are just one variable in a very complex equation that a magnetic p'up is.

Without more info about style of music you play and the rest of the rig, taking an educated guess is simply out of the question.
