I got an email yesterday from Fender. It announced the limited offering of Josefina pickups. This lady was THE apprentice to Abigail Ybarra who supposedly produced a lot of the pickups from the 1960's and later. She trained Josefina. So I have heard these pickups occasionally on the Wildwood site, and Greg Koch demos. So I figure they will a little more expensive than a set of CS'69 (Which might be in my old 1970 Strat and wound by Abby?) I was floored by the price of $499 which is much more than the CS'69s which are listed at $199. I don't love the 1970's pickups, but they deliver a low output sound in comparison to the Laces I have in my 1990 Ultra. And they have a RWRP middle pickup which will solve a lot of noisiness, in the #2 & 4 positions. That's the controversy....Worth it or not?
