    Older Santana Pickups???

    Can anyone chime in on what the older uncovered zebra Santana pickups sound like in comparison to any other PRS pickups?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    They obviously have the "Carlos" sound to them. To me, they sound a bit like Dragon II's.

    Haha nice! In that case, I will resist the "place bid" button... I'm just looking for something different to put in my SE Santana.. The McCarty set in there now are ok but I want something to put the guitar over the top...

    Thank you sir! I figured they would have that pronounced midrange Carlos vibe and the D-II comparison helps tremendously!

    Thanks for not bidding against me. I got 'em! If they don't work out for me, I'll give you dibs. Thanks again!

    Youre Very Welcome! I was eyeing those up as well. I hope they work out for you.
