I purchased a used ME Quattro about a year ago, and it came with Dirty South pickups in it. Great pickups but VERY, VERY hot! It makes the guitar sound like a REALLY fat tele, rather than a nice warm hum bucker guitar. I did purchase the 53/10s, just in case I wanted to sell the guitar or restore it to it's 'original' configuration. I'm really partial to 59/09s, though, as I have them in an IRW SCT, and that guitar sounds amazing. My custom 24 with 57/08s is a little too vintage-y for me, but I don't plan to change those out! A PS that I have coming in is going to have 59/09s as well.
I'm just curious if anyone has changed their MEQ to 59/09s, and if they like that better than the 53/10s...
Now on to find a set of covered 59/09s!!!!
