    Try a better tone cap before you pony up for new pickups.
    The little brown .033uf poly chiclet cap in these probably costs Fender about 5 cents.

    I used a Jensen foil in oil (stupid money yes) .01 cap in my Blond CV50. It sounds like someone plulled a blanket off my amp and a slight but noticeable increase in output as well.
    I also tried Mallory and Sozo's they also sounded better than the stock cap.
    If I had to describe it sonically, better clairity or more open sound....like better quality pickups.

    When I need more mids or grind, I just crank it in on the amp or step on a pedal.
    Definitely worth experimenting with....
