I went to visit Don Mare today. I didn't know but he ahs been working on a new humbucker pickup design. He was just using some old epiphone humbucker chassis and some Alnico 4 magnets to do testing with. He is using his Rosie wrap design and some other special stuff to do the winding. He just would up a bridge pickup and put it in his Greco Super Real Les Paul. This one was just over 9K. Man listening to it I felt like I was a a 70's rock concert. They got the ghost notes and crack I associate with that period which so many other humbuckers on the market fail to capture. All of those tones from those 70's artists like Led Zep, ZZ Top, and Free. Very cool stuff. If this early pickups is any indication, Don Mare will be winding great humbucker pickups to go along with the single coil stuff he is known for. Hope he ends up going into production on them, I want a set bad.
