With some help from the sound engineer who runs our board typically, I feel now that I have the CuNiFe pickup and the bridge perfectly balanced. This WRHB upgrade was worth it in my opinion. We played out again and I am getting used to the Fiesta Red hanging on the strap. Gotta admit, I sometimes feel it would fit better in a surf band maybe, but I am loving the guitar. I picked up a 2012 Cabronita a little after this one because I have always had an interest. The previous owner had replaced the pot and switch and put Gretsch Filter'tron HS pickups in it. When playing across the many cuts in a set, I have really grown fond of this guitar and how well it fills the sonic space with this Vintera. Nice to have these guitars in the arsenal.
