Just bought a 2012 american standard strat with fat 50s pickups. Beautiful candy apple red with a rosewood fret board. It's in mint condition, not even any fret wear, but I'm not loving the pickups. Not a big deal to replace them, but I'm wondering if anybody else feels the same way about them. Maybe I'm missing something. I have a 99 American standard and a Vintera 50s strat and they are both way better sounding. Is it just an " old dude out of touch" thing?
