Yeah I changed both of the pups, I hated the hot ceramic tone when I rolled back the volume. went with some classic 57 I had laying around the next day, they were nickel so looked odd. Got a set of Wallace pups in aged gold and put them in. Nice price I paid 1100 for a NOS one still used in 2012, natural was rare and at an premnium price
Great guitars, congrats! I purchased this one last year. Made a few mods to get that “58” vibe. The pickups are BareKnuckles Ragnarok and they REALLY kick some serious ass! Might want to give them a shot…
Great guitar, great deal. Nice going. I love '59s. It is totally easy to goose up your signal with a pedal, but impossible to tame already "hot" pickups. I have no idea why people find it necessary to drop in steaming pickups when these guitars are capable of a whole wide range of great tones if you choose more articulate, moderate-output units like the '59. Duncans can seem like an unglamorous choice, but Seymour knows more about pickup winding than anyone, and the '59 is one of his standouts.
