    59947F67-C83B-47BA-8633-EB3E9EA642A3.jpeg FedEx just dropped this off.... Giddy like a school girl!!!

    I want to put them in my 68’ Strat... but having a hard time wrapping my head around it. Taking the real 68’ pickups out and putting these in?? But it’s a $500 set of pickups ... I’m not putting them in a MIM. An the 68’ deserves something special...

    My problem exactly! “Goldie” the 68’ is a partscaster... all real Fender parts except for one pickup, pots and things like that. Goldie’s is a re-fin pre-CBS body with 68’ Neck, Pickups, and Bridge... she’s a bit of a mutt. But she’s been my mutt for 43 years. She’s been modded out the wazoo but now is basically stock. She’s had pre-amps I build from Craig Anderton projects, EMG’s, a Locking Nut type thing... now she is mostly retired from gigging but it would be nice to take her out now and then. She gets the expensive pickups cause she deserves them... besides I can always put her originals back ...

    I'd put them in a Squier Bullet, because it would be cool to have a guitar with pickups that are worth more than the actual guitar. :D
