    My first Strat copy had been upgraded with Rio Grande pickups before I discovered it on the GC website. I marched right into the store when they opened the next morning, and a deal was struck for sticker price, $150.

    Some people have posted about the potential difficulty of getting your money out of a guitar after upgrades. In this case, it kept the 'used' asking price down-to my benefit.

    One of the pups is marked Halfbreed. I'll contact RG in the future to possibly ID the other two pups. The magnet pole pieces are not large enough for the Muy Grande model. All three are definitely RG, and AlNico V pickups.

    Is anyone else using Rio Grande pickups?
