Anybody want to sell me one???
Hmmm. That sounds kinda cool for giving a bit of versatility sound-wise. I've never done this with any of my guitars. Is it tough to do? I assume you just have to buy a "push/pull" pot, and then wire your pickups differently to facilitate it? Thanks man!I have a GFS Retrotron Hot Liverpool neck pickup in an Epi Special II. This is a PAF-size pickup, not a direct Filtertron replacement.
It sounds great wired parallel, really clear and sparkly. Wired series it's about like a regular medium output humbucker. S I'd say go for it but only if you can add a push-pull for series parallel options.
Oddly their wiring diagrams don't include that option but Seymour Duncan's probably does, or DiMarzio, or maybe check Stewart Macdonald or Allparts. Just be sure to check up the GFS color code in case it does not match SD's.Hmmm. That sounds kinda cool for giving a bit of versatility sound-wise. I've never done this with any of my guitars.

And am interested in any mini-hum recommendations too if anyone has replaced the one in their Alleykat.
A little late maybe, but I just finished the pickup swap in my Alleykat. I put a Duncan Seth Lover in the bridge and a Duncan "seymourized" mini at the neck. Wow, what a difference! This thing is absolutely a whole new beast. What was a nice player now sounds like a million bucks. That Duncan mini, in particular, has this open bell tone to it with the sweet upper mids that minis do so well. Man, I shoulda made that change when I got it!I really don't have a problem with the pickups, but because I enjoy goofing around with swapping pickups in guitars (especially budget ones), I'm toying with some new ones in my new Alleykat. Anyone have any recommendations or luck with changing pu's in these? I've never tried Filtrons on any guitar....I don't know much about them except for that they look kinda cool. Anyone have any good/bad with the GFS styled ones? I also don't have any experience with a mini-humbucker...this is my first guitar with one. Any recommendations there would be great too. Still loving the #### out of this guitar. It totally looks and plays sweet. I have a music room full of expensive guitars: 3 USA Les Pauls, American Strat and Teles, etc. and this guitar fits in great among them. I love the looks of it. Thanks in advance for any advice mentioned above ^
