Its amazing that Bill Lawrence doesnt get more props then he does. The guy is a genius (my favorite pickups ever made), an incredible guitarist and he and his wife are such good and honest people. Check out this video of him playing at NAMM. Its a cool video, right when you think he's gotten tired and things are slowing down he throws in some really tasteful lick.

If only I could play like him at 78. wait, if only i could play like him now :rotflmao

Love Bill and the family...use his pups in both my strat and tele. I laugh at folks who pay 3-5 times the amount of what BL charges for his handwound pups...just wasting money.

I'm drinking the l500xl kool-aid - I really like the "live" quality (pinch harmonics & squeeks) I was diappointed w/ the first "bill lawrence USA" - but a friend (who told me about them) clued me in to the counterfeits.

I bought mine from Bill and Becky.

Oh I almost forgot - yeah, Bill's a great classic player - funny how he'll be sitting there looking around as he plays.

If you want to get any info just visit his website.

http://www.billlawrence.com/

IF that doesnt show you a clear option you can email Becky and talk to her ( an actual person with knowledge) and she will help you with a choice.

NEVER buy Bill Lawrence USA. As stated above its a corporate rip off and very cheaply made.

Yeah, their Keystone pups sound divine in my Tele, and their cables are great. As far as I can tell, they're the most affordable, and among the best pedalboard cables available.
