Hey Smitty! – I had to send ya another email after giving these PUPs a good 1st run. Wow man, these things are perfection for me. I won’t go into every little thing but what stands out most for me is everything is so nicely articulated on all 3 pickups. The neck is the perfect balance of that bell tone with just enough brightness that I’ve wanted for a while. I use 500k pots in my strats for the extra brightness, and still never achieve the tone I want – this neck pickup has 100% provided me that tone I’ve been chasing. It’s subtle but it’s finally there. The bridge pickup doesn’t hum too much at all, in fact it’s perfect and again I would say that this is the exact kind of tone I was after with the exact kind of attack and “openess?” (Is that a word?). Anyway, I’ll post some video this week sometime. Currently behind on demoing my own stuff this week but I really wanted to say thank you very much for doing an absolutely outstanding job on these! I couldn’t be happier with them!
