I bought this guitar a few months ago not knowing that it was somewhat of a rare/collectible guitar. It has all the original parts right now, and I was wondering if I should leave it as is or change the pickups. I don't really care for the tone because it's too fuzzy. If I change the pickups(I was thinking of these ) , would it lower the "cool" value?
Yes. I don't know why you'd change to those pickups either because they're kind of modeled after those old teisco type guitars anyhow. The pickups on those teiscos are the best part.
I agree, they do really fit the guitar well, but the tone that they give just isn't clear enough for me. Those GFS pickups look pretty similar, and I've heard good things about them. Not arguing, just trying to explain a little better. If you still think it would affect the coolness of it, I probably won't do it.
Yeah, maybe see if you can find something really thrashed to mod out. If it's in good enough shape to be played well enough to talk about tone then it's in to good of shape to hack haha
