I thought about a non-Fender custom make, but ultimately still want the "real" thing. Masterbuilt costs a bitch though.
Love the Mary Kaye look. I used to have a custom shop RI Mary Kaye (not master built) that I liked for awhile until I got my '58. And I don't think I'd have bought a non-Fender if I didn't already have a real one.
Still, the PS is a totally different beast. EMGs are interesting. Not quite the same feel or sound as a vintage pickup but lots of dynamics and fantastic sustain.
