Smitty – You may recall I ordered a set of pickups for my Godin Montreal several weeks back. We spoke on the phone and I was interested in the exact same configuration that was demonstrated by Rik Emmett on his “Soupy” guitar, which is also a Godin Montreal.
I have to say I was extremely delighted with the pickups. I admit I’m no Rik Emmett and the sound I get is a bit different from that portrayed in the video. But I absolutely loved both pickups!! The split single has excellent articulation and note definition, but also has a little body to it so as to not sound thin. AND it is dead quiet when I record, which is a big plus for me.
The shop where I had them installed — Binghamtone Guitars in Vestal, NY was also very impressed and they have worked with many different pickups. The bridge pickup is beefy and is wonderful when I add crunch or distortion. It gives me one of the smoothest and best sounding dirt tones I’ve ever had with a guitar. I just wanted to tell you how completely delighted I am with the pickups.
Thanks again!!! Great pickups!!
