Bought this online a couple weeks ago. It's got a couple dindleberries in it but it's in pretty good shape.


The pickups sound pretty good. I'll play it a few weeks and think about and changes I might make

People ***** about these pickups, WRHBs they are not, but damn that neck pickup sounds good. The bridge sounds good but the neck is great. I haven't adjusted anything yet so I hope to get them both sounding awesome

Congrats, I like it! If I had that guitar I would put the reissue WRHBs in it.
I've thought about that but I'm trying to find a reason to not like these pickups and a reason to like the reissue WRHB. Do you have the reissue WRHB?

I do not, but for me it wouldn't have to do with the existing PUs, it would be about wanting to experience what true cunife WRHBs are really like.

BTW I love the paint on that guitar.

I have the j mascis roadworn and it also has some “dingleberries” in the finish

I wonder if it has to do with the sparkly finish

I changed the neck pup to a CuNiFe WD on my Custom. I also have a blue FSR Deluxe (with a nice sparkle), and to be honest the difference between the neck pickups were quite small.

You can watch this video too:


So, I’m going to keep the neck, but I do have some plans for the bridge pup.
