Good Morning Mike, I hope all is well in your neck of the jungle. Got the pickups yesterday and installed them. I have an issue though…I have 4 other guitars that I can’t afford to get custom pickups made for. LOL. I ran it through the same old Vox I tested the original pickups on. Left controls on the amp as they were. I gotta tell ya, this $400 Chickenbacker 325 sounds wonderful. Great clarity, tone is what I call thick and crisp. It has lots of power and sounds wonderful through an MXR OD pedal. Oh yea, no hum! Your product, workmanship, customer service,(and packaging) is top of house Mike. Although it took me 10 minutes to unwrap the package. Lol. You delivered exactly as you said you would. Six Stars buddy. I’m proudly displaying your decal on my guitar case. Can’t thank you enough. Take care of yourself.
