Members ColoradoFenderB Posted March 21, 2010 Members Share Posted March 21, 2010 I recently picked up a 1990 Custom: Overall, I am very happy with this guitar. Looks beautiful and is extremely comfortable - it fits me. BUT, the pickups are not to my liking. The neck is way too muddy and bassy. The bridge is better, but not outstanding. After spending several different nights trying to dial in acceptable settings, I was able to find a sweet spot for the bridge. The neck is hopeless. Does anyone know which pickups were standard in 1990 Customs? Also, what pickups would you choose if you were going to replace these? The first thought that comes to mind is the safe bet, Classic 57/57+ set. But, I am sertainly open to some other options. What about the SD Slash set? Any others that make sense? FYI - I play mostly classic rock and classic hard rock. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
