    Seriously, all caps comes across as SCREAMING!

    :hyper:

    As far as your question, I like the original pickups in these better than any replacement I've heard.

    Good luck.

    +1 for original. Some guys like putting in replacements but I dont think it gets much better than the stock one.

    I find most prefer the original electronics and pickup. One can usually buy replacement pickup and preamp, sell the original and make a profit. Are you looking at the one that's listed for $650 with those mods?

    Aren't SUB pickups pretty much the same as 'Ray pickups though?
     
  9. I'm this close to swapping my SUB's p'ups with the Nordstrand MM's.
