FDP Forum / All Other Fender Guitars and Instruments / Mustang 69RI MIJ worth to install vintage pups?



Nov 6th, 2012 01:57 AM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

I use my MIJ 69 Mustang for clean tones. It performs allright, but when I hear vintage US Mustangs on YouTube, I start doubting.

Would it be worth to spend 300 u$ on authentic vintage US DuoSonic or Mustang pups?

Do you think that such a Japanese Mustang would sound much better?

Just put in better replacements.

Don't bother with vintage or expecting exactly what you hear in demos.

That said, better may not mean expensive - to be honest, the pickups in my Squier Mustang are radically better than the remaining stock pickup in my '69RI.
