Ohhhh! You got one with the magic pickups!
Have had some more time with it, and the bridge pickup sounds absolutely bonkers good! Like I dont want to stop playing. Jangle but with both depth and some heat.

The neck pickup I’m finding a bit murky though. Like, I’ve had to check the tone control multiple times just to make sure I’ve not turned it the wrong way kind of murky. Sounds cool with overdrive, but perhaps I wish it had some more high-end. Has this been your experience as well?
I got to play one at a store, and both PUPs were great. Super balanced. I'm stumped.

Seems to be common enough I guess? I remember hearing Danocaster put a firebird pickup in the neck position to get a brighter sound out of it because his was also muddy.

Jealous though, you've had a good month! This and the '66 JM! So sick
