    Default Upgrade pickup on Mandocaster Re-issue?

    With Moongazer out of business (RIP), who makes a drop-in replacement pick up for the Fender Mandocaster re-issue. I'm getting tired of the puny E string. Any suggestions?

    + another one for Almuse. Took 2 days from ordering to delivery (but we’re both in the UK) and all of 10 minutes with a screwdriver and soldering iron to fit the pickup. The only difficult bit was getting the strings back on!

    Touch the music put there by the summer sun and wind
    The rhythms of the rain, locked within the rings
    And let your fingers find The Music in the Wood."
    Joe Grant and Al Parrish (chorus from The Music in the Wood)
