    Hi guys, i bought a T-Bird. I'd like to change pickups, so i there's a problem. Size of standard gibson pickups is 94 x 42mm. Epiphone pickups are 97 x 37mm. So... Are all the alternative pickups too big to put it in it? I'd like to get that sound:

    Hard to distinguish the bass on that video - but from what I can tell, your stock pups should do just fine. Maybe back the neck pup vol off just a little, keep the bridge vol & tone knob up, and play with a pick.
