Picked up a POS the other day just for the pickups with BOSS on them. I found zero anywhere on the net about BOSS pickups and I had to know. Turns out they’re noiseless and a little microphonic but they doing great. I had a new black anodized aluminum guard so I put them on my Tradition G12 Deluxe. Here’s a short video.

The build quality on the Tradition guitars are fantastic.
There was a guy on the old Dean forum that was a Tradition dealer. When he got out of the business I bought 3 G12M models from him for $100 each. I've had probably 20 since then but always the G12 model. It's about 95% Fender MIM quality IMO. The electronics (pots and switch) is where the MIM Fender gets the nod. The G10 model has the rounded headstock and IMO that neck isn't nearly as good as the G12 one.
