Guitar Enthusist, Guitarist with Aaron Cross
A small excerpt from Martina’s Blog on her new MJS pups:
…After an hour and a half of trying different guitars/pickup combinations, I settled on a overwound (hot) humbucker for the bridge pickup, and a vintage single coil for the neck pickup. (Shhh…don’t tell anyone I put a single coil in a Les Paul!) I was a little nervous at first because I didn’t know what they would sound like in my guitar. Once they were installed, I was absolutely thrilled!
WOW! A musician can only dream about finally having an instrument that does what he/she wants to when they play it. The muddy quality of my factory pickups was gone! In was the clear sustain of the new MJS handwound pickups and the beefy crunch that came with that humbucker. Now when I chug along on powerchords, there is a definite “chug”, not just a tinny, aluminum sounding whimper…
