Hello,
I just ordered a brand new ls186 tonnaco burst, she's on her way home
I wonder how good the pickups will be
I own a ls95 and i really didn't like the pups. I changed for hand wound maf replicas and it's so much better (especially the bridge)
Do premium lps comme with the same pups as vintage lps?
On tokai website i see it's paf mk2S on vintage and paf mk2 on premium models
Thanks!

premiums come with mk2 pickups instead of mk2s.
the s's are more modern, higher output.
the others are more vintage voiced and a bit lower output (I didnt like them on my ls360)

Wron guess
I tried it but found the bridge very harsh.
So i couldnt resist mounting my beloved hand wound PAF (hepcat 59 paf, made in france)

I still have to get used to the stifness of the cts pots, they're too hard too turn for my taste...
