    Default Question

    I recently acquired this Tele in trade for another piece of equipment. It has a Dan Armstrong pickup in the neck position. I don't really know much about them. Is it worth keeping it in, or should I replace it with a PAF?

    Even if you can afford (and find) a PAF, you might just want to plug that thing in and hear that pickup before yanking it. How it sounds to you is more important than anyone else's opinion.

    ...this is true, I guess maybe I should adjust pickup hights and such till I find a sweet spot.
    Thanks guys.

    It's a beauty! And yes, I would definitely play it for awhile before deciding on any changes.
