    Are the pickups potted?

    O.k. Thanks. At least now I know why I like my 2012 unplugged, but not so much plugged in. The older I get, the more I like unpotted pickups.

    I never got along with the Fat '50s, maybe that's why. Never gave it a thought about them being potted or not.

    I had the same experience with the Fat 50's on my Shawbucker AmStd. They weren't bad, just didn't seem right to me for some reason. I ended up selling off that guitar instead of swapping things out. For me, the Lace Sensors remain my favorites for Strats.
