What other pickup(s) have y'all tried with your Encore;
How did it shape the sound in general and/or compared to the stock Zum pickup
You have any A/B recordings you wouldn't mind sharing? Thanks!

I really like the single coil Truetone that came in it. But I've been doing a lot of fly-to gigs and you never know what kind of backline you're going to get -- so I decided to try something a little thicker. I've been using the XR-16 which I like quite a bit. That said, I will probably go back to the single coil at some point!
