    Has anyone else tried these pickups? I bought a set for my Strat and was so impressed I bought a Humbucker set called "Dirty Cats" and they are the best sounding pickups I ever used. I have a set of D'Allen's P-51 Humbucker on the way. I sold all my EMG's, Duncans, Gibsons, & Dimarzios because I'm never going back. I think all those major brands make great pickups for the money but now I know that all pickups are not created equal. I'm now into pickups because unlike effects I use my pickups 100% of the time. I have a set of Lollar Imperials Low Winds on the way for my SG and was looking at the bare knuckles Mules. Is there any other brands I should look at?

    I have a set of Custom Shop Austin Blues in a Strat and love them. The neck pickup is perhaps my favorite all time Strat neck pickup. I EVEN prefer it to the neck pickup from my Fralin Vintage Hots!

    David is a very kind man as well.

    GREAT pickups!!!

    Why hasn't word got out more about his pickups? I have the Austin Blues in my Strat also and love the tone. I purchased my set of Austin Blues during the Holidays on special for 88.00. His prices are very reasonable. My Dirty Cats cost me $217.00 with Gold Covers delivered. I just bought some Lollar Imperials with Gold Covers for $370.00 delivered. I'll let you guys know which set I prefer by the weekend. What about the Bare Knuckles? Any news?

    I will find out soon enough as I got an email from him today saying my '69 Voodoo's will be shipping in the next couple days.

    And if you go over to the strat-talk forum, the boards have been lit up with kudos for David Allen for a long time now. I finally decided I should see what all the fuss is about! And as I keep hearing more good things, I'm tempted to order more pickups for my other guitars before the prices get raised!
