I realize this subject has been covered in the past and I have searched out the old threads. But, what I'm wondering: If you have replaced the stock pickups, what did you replace them with, and are you satisfied or still searching? If you still have the stock pickups, are you considering a change and what are you leaning towards? I have the stock pups in my '05. This is the 2nd McCarty I have owned, and I have come to realize that it is probably the perfect guitar for my style of playing. I play a lot of "tele-style" licks but I like a fatter tone, and the 25" scale of the McCarty still gives it a lot of "snap" that I can't get out of a 24 3/4" scale Gibson. BUT, I'm feeling like the tone could be even better with different pickups. I'm hoping to find some that are not quite as "focused", a little more open sounding. I don't want high output, but I do want fatness and squawk. Thoughts/suggestions??
