Hey Doug great point about the Lakland vs. Fender. I am looking for single coils so I guess that will be a problem. Regarding your pickups that you'll be selling...I'm probably leaning more toward the Nordy's but thanks for the heads up . Hey Doug one more thing I just thought of. I'm not that up to date on what Fender is doing but wouldn't I be able to go to Fender to get a stock Fender single coil set that would fit my AD V? It seems to me that should be a pretty easy thing to do. Do you have any experience in that area? Thanks again.
