I have a little beater Affinity Tele that I actually quite enjoy playing. I've been wanting to tinker with her for a while now and do some upgrades such as pups, pots, etc...this will be my first foray into changing my own electronics, fwiw. Anyhow, I don't want to drop a lot of coin on pickups, but I'd like something better than the super cheap pickups it has in it from the factory. I'd like something with some attitude...nothing too tame or sweet. When I play this thing, I want it to have some character (if that makes any sense). Something that says "I've seen bar fights, had beer bottles thrown at me, and have incited a couple riots".
