So, I've been using a Gibson Marauder as my main guitar now, And I decided to plug in my old guitar (old fender squire Stratocaster, not an affinity Squire Strat by fender)

And I noticed a BIG difference in the pickups...

The Marauder's Pickups are very weak (especially the Bridge one)
But I don't think any other pickups would look right on this guitar! T_T

The pickups are Bill Lawrence sealed in clear epoxy...

Is there any pickups that might look similar, but are hotter?
Or is there a way to make it's current pickups hotter?

and If not, Please List some good pickup choices.

Just change the humbucker, burstbucker maybe



Is there a way to cover a new burstbucker in clear Epoxy like the one marauders come stock with?

probably but i don't know how
you could always just leave them uncovered

I have a Marauder too and I've bought Gibson P94 pups to replace the humbucker, they're not the same looking but I hope the sound is gonna be better.
Not yet installed, but I'll tell you how it sounds.

I'm very interested in what kind of pickups sounds good on marauder.

I've seen two bands guitarist with modified marauder : Oxford Collapse and Harvey Milk.
Do you know what kind of pickups they're using?

It just needs said, Harvey Milk are amazing. I wish I could help with the pick-ups. I'd stick a JB Jr. or something in there and save the stock one for when you'll need it.

I guess I might just stick with the stock.
I rarely use the bridge. (only for solos w/ wah I use it)

what the..

i thought the marauder was a prototype guitar by fender that was never made commercially available...

/completely unhelpful post, sorry
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
