I had HFS in my ce24 but like you it was way too bright so it got a pair of 5708s, much better.
I recently put 5310s in an all hog body ce22 and they sound pretty dam good. I think I'm going to send it off for a setup though.
Hi, I have had a 1989 custom 24 from new, I wanted to have some warmer fatter pickups, but may be problematic because of the wiring (sweet switch) would appreciate and suggestions
Thanks in advance
