    Time to engage your pioneer spirit,Strato50. Then you can be the hero and tell the rest of us about 'em.

    I bought three sets of his Alnico 62z (vintage spec alnico Strat pickups for $24 a set) to replace ceramics in some Squier and Fernandes Strats, and they're quite good, probably equal to more expensive GFS, Tonerider, Artec, or even maybe Fender, SD, or Dimarzios.

    I'll have to try this company.

    FWIW, I have used cheaper HBs from both Guitar Heads and Dragonfire and been very happy with them. I tend to get the sets with a higher output bridge, so I can coil tap. But, those 57s appear to be similar to the BurstBucker 1&2 set I have in an Explorer. I may have to try the 57s.

    Assuming you tried adjusting the pickup's height, I would do a wiring mod or change the pot/cap values first. A lot of the Epiphones have crappy electronics. You could also try a high pass filter for the neck pickup if it's still too dark. If your stuck on single coils, it'll be hard to find a set of HB's you like other than Minibuckers or Filtertrons. Not a bad thing or maybe go for some HB sized P90's.
