    Hi all

    Can anyone comment on the latest custom shop pups in the new AS Fenders?

    How do they compare to the 08-11?

    I know the pole pieces are no longer flush.

    I have a 2012 American Standard Jazz with the Fender Custom Shop pickups and it sounds great but can not compare them with those of 08-11 since I haven't played one. This is my first Fender in over 25 years.

    I have 2008-2011 American Standards, and have played a couple of the 2012 American Standards in shops. The CS pickups seem a bit "hotter" than the ones in the 2008-2011 model. I personally didn't like them better, but YMMV.
