I have a Fender Telecaster Custom FMT with two humbuckers which is made in Korea i believe. I was just wondering if anyone has one of these and if anyone knows how well these compare to American made Strats/Teles. Would i be better off replacing my pickups, which are fenders not the seymour duncan pearly gates that came in many of these guitars , or save up and buy a better guitar?
Pearly Gates makes for an amazing bridge pup in my strat. Little fatter and bassier than Fender buckers. Also I think it's got a little more bawlz too. Sounds great clean, a little dirt, a lot of dirt

Dunno how it sounds in the neck but I think SD actually recomends them for that position?
