    Hi All,

    I gather the pickups in the MIM 75th Anniversary are shared with the Vintera 50s model (both have 896 on the back of the bridge, and are an Alnico II/III set).

    The Chrissie Hynde is also called a Vintage 50s, but has a different part code (901 from memory), and I gather these are voiced to match her 62.

    Has anybody put these side by side to compare?

    Thanks!

    I like Alnico 111 pickups- slightly warmer sound.
