I've been lurking around the last few days trying to find some more info on my recently acquired 95 AVRI 57 Reissue. It appears at first glance to have the original pickups in it. They are pretty warm sounding, but also generally thin.. and most interesting to me is that they really drive the front of my Goodsell Super 17 amp hard. I get gobs of breakup even at lower volume which I like, yet seemed way over the top. I swapped out the pickups for a used set of Lindy Fralin Vintage Hots (according to the original owner were more than 10 years old). The Fralins have a very sweet open singing quality which I like, but don't seem to drive the front of the amp nearly as hard as the stock pickups. i was surprised by this, as i expected it to be the other way around. I'm starting to wonder if the pickups that arrived in the AVRI are possibly Texas specials or some other extra hot pickup? any thoughts on how to identify or is this pretty normal? Any help is appreciated. I've also included some pics of the new strat for fun.
