    So it looks like the Fralin Blues Special wins for me. It naturally matches the Unbucker a bit better than the Don Mare. The Mare has a bit more bite and less bass. The mare was 6.6K and the Fralin was 7.4. I still have a set of Klea Ebay pickups coming (single tele neck and bridge) and may test the Mare with that. I was getting some exceptional tones with the Zep-o-tone with a Toneking Imperial and Mesa Stiletto so it's probably worth keeping depending on what flavor I'm going after.

    I think they're right in your home state! Austin to be exact...
    If I had to do it again, I might see if they'd make a set with a 1/4 reduction in height since I use the reverse control layout with the switch at the back. Would make hitting the heavy curl knobs more difficult and I'd have fewer lacerations on my picking hand. I jest of course but it was one of those "touch a hot pan" moments. Do it once and you won't soon do it again. But quality stuff none the less.
