Bought a Special a while ago. Right off the bat I didn't like the pickups. Very high output mini humbuckers and they just seemed too muddy sounding too me. I like clean and pretty sounds as well as overdriven sounds. I bought a cheap set of vintage spec Artecs which were a big improvement but still wasn't totally satisfied. Just a couple days ago I put in a set of Lollar mini humbuckers. Now it sounds great! Has anyone else a similar experience with this model?
