min buckers, meh, never liked them they make the guitar look like ass.... plus they have too much trebble if you ask me. Full size or P-90's anyday to those things...

Mini and P90s were nice as when they were removed they left nice holes which made routing the body for Super Distortions easier.

I traded in my Deluxe for a new amp and a MIJ Les Paul. The minis just were not cool enough back then, but now I’d love to have them. I wonder if I could get one to fit in the bridge slot of my Special.

I love active pickups. It's funny how people share uninformed opinions about them, boldly.

EVERYBODY wants BIG tones- I get tired of that-often I like the little tones that could. Plus- a thing called songcraft-don't mean a thing if it doesn't have the swing.
