Hi I picked up a mik Hamer echotone. It's has been set up very well new pots and caps /electronics as well as hardware with dressed frets. Everything is great except the pickups. On a budget and want a good set of paf style pickups to put in them. I have heard pretty good reviews on the gfs ones but anyone else have anyone they would recommend? Thanks

Call Peavey.....


They still have stock on hand of the HP Signature USA guitar humbuckers......they are ridiculously good and at the nobrainer price of $32 each shipped.

How good are they?......well I am yanking out the Gibson 57 plus in my new SG to put one in.

probably would be very expensive for me....i'd try every combo i could think up lol
That's the beauty of winding your own: you can tweak your recipe until you get just the perfect pickup for what you want to do. Magnet wire is cheap so if one isn't quite right you can just rip it up and start again. You wouldn't do that with a Lollar Imperial...

OK it's not for everyone but anyone interested can find more info here.

What's your budget? I'd look around used. I got a pair of Dimarzio Air Classics for $80 on CL not too long ago.
