I had a furrian that I put a fender neck on, but left everything else stock. The stock pick ups were decent but wanted to play with the mags since I never did it before. I pulled the ceramic mags and replaced them with A2 mags. I thought there would be a bit of a difference but I wasn't expecting this drastic of a difference, for the better, much better. The neck pickup is true p90 perfection. May play around with A5 in the bridge, but i'm really really surprised how different these cheapo pickups sound. The whole process took me about 15 mintues. I'm hooked.
