    I bought some gold covered McCarty pickups that are secondhand online. Planning to swap out the standard zebra ones (2019) and install the McCartys. It's my first time doing an upgrade like this and I will have some help but wanted to make sure there is no issue with putting these pickups in this guitar.

    You shouldn't have any issues - they will work very well. Make sure you post pics of the process and of the finished product!

    Awesome thank you. Considering also replacing the wiring and whatnot for a more classic sound but not sure exactly what to get haha. I will take some good photos
