Bought a Parker P-36 today. Thinking of putting Wild Bill Lawrence Pickups in. Talk me out of it.

    I still have a set of WBL tele pickups I bought from someone on here to try in my MadCat. Thinking they might pair well with the fishman bridge.

    I won't talk you out of it. They are great pickups. What don't you like about the Parker set? Why didn't you put the WBL in the MadCat?

    I bought two sets of pickups to try in the MadCat. One was custom made by Dylan Pickups, the other was the WBLs. I tried both and the Dylan Pickups had more character in that particular guitar, but I really liked the WBLs as well so I put them in a drawer.

    The stock pickups sound to me like regular Tele pickups, which I'm not wild about-- the neck is muddy and they're overall pretty noisy.

    I have a Lawrence 280/290 set in my ash tele, and they are awesome, and no noise.
    Sorry, I guess we're not much help

    Well that rules me out! Although this is a wickedly 90s shaped guitar

    That's way I build my own, so I don't need to mod.

    I'm not one to mod just for modding's sake, and I've been happy with the pickups in every Parker I've owned.
