    So I was thinking of replacing the pickups in my BTB 675. i was looking at Nordstrand pickups. What do you guys think and any other recommendations would be awesome!

    Nordy's all the way. Seriously! I was an EMG and Bartolini guy for years, and used one or the other depending on what I needed. Nordstands effectively became my pickup of choice, at least for soapbars. They just completely blew me away. They can go from muddy to crystal clear and bell-like with the turn of a knob.

    I haven't tried their precision or jazz sets yet, though for those, I always preferred Seymore Duncan's. If they can beat the Duncan's, I'll go Nordstrand all the way around.

    At any rate, if you decide to go with the Nordstrands, go with the Fat Stacks :)

    I have the Nordy Big singles in the Premium 1406e Model BTB. I love them, they were one of the big factors to what made me decide to go with that versus the lower end versions. The Fat stacks are suppose to be great as well (and less noisy haha).
