Well...all of the sudden the other day my neck pickup on my 2011 American Standard Tele just lost most of its output. The bridge was fine, I took it to my guy and he did some testing and said it wasn't the switch which I was hoping but that it was the pickup - measured very low output and was basically fried. No idea how that happens but I guess sometimes it does. Anyway, I liked the Amer. Std pickups but I felt they were a bit bright and was thinking of changing some day, so I decided now was the time. I have read such great things about the Keystones so they are on there way. Any comments on how the Keystones will compare to the 2011 American Standard p/ups? It was time for a change anyway. Also have a MIM 2010 Tele with David Allen Fat Cats which I like quite a lot. I also turn 50 in 10 days and my beautiful wife will be presenting me with a Candy Apple Red '64 AVRI (my birth year) so I'll have that to compliment my new Keystone loaded Tele, so I think I'll be in a good spot very soon. Feel free to compare the Keystones to any of the above - thanks.
