Just wanted to share that, like many before, I changed out the magnets in my S2. I've been unable to pick new pups (too many good choices) and had previously ordered some A5's and A4's - which arrived today. Figured nothing to lose so put the 5 in the bridge and 4 in the neck. Pickups used to sound dull and compressed. Now, getting much richer harmonics - more open. The neck has nice warm bell/bluesy tones and the bridge has a quacky but cutting tone. Thinner than the neck, but more aggressive. Best $8 I've spent in a while. Ordered new PRS pots - so look forward to putting those in as well. Anyway, If you have SE or S2 picks, my vote is to give the magnets a try before you drop $300 on new pups. Takes only about 15 minutes.
