I tried a bunch of pickups in this maple/basswood G&L Legacy Deluxe. The pickup I don't even like in Gibsons beat everything.....a friggin Gibson 498T!!!!
There's also a Cool Rails neck and G&L middle. My 'shred guitar.'
Fender American Series w/rare 90's reverse metallic blueburst. Jazz bridge, and 2 Surfers. Blues, rock, pop sound. Possibly the best calibrated vintage strat HSS setup.
