Harry Haeussel builds some excellent hummers that sound GREAT when *split* (I use the term on purpose).Originally posted by joolzriff

Have you checked out Fralin Unbuckers yet? We have some Gadow guitars with them and they sound great.
I would also cast my vote for these. They are quickly becoming my favorite pickups.
How would you classify those Unbuckers, Dave? I'm considering a pair for one of my axes.Originally posted by Dave Orban

I certainly wouldn't classify them as PAF-sounding, but I DO think that they sound really, REALLY good...!
No, I'm afraid I don't know, and unfortunately, have no way of checking them myself...Originally posted by Bluewail
Do you know the impedance measurements of your Unbuckers both in the full HB and single coil modes? I'm looking to get a set for a MIJ Fender Robben Ford model. Since Lindy offers some variations in the winding, I'd be curious to know how yours measure. I've been thinking of going with an 8k (split to 5k), neck and 9K (split to 5.5k) bridge. I think that's the hottest I can get in the single coil mode.
Afraid not... Mark Kayne (Marcus McQuarrie) had originally ordered them for this guitar...Originally posted by Jon Silberman
Dave, thanks very much for your detailed and informative review.
I think I am exactly in the same boat as you as to what I'd be seeking from the Unbuckers and expect to cop a pair now based on your review.
The folks here who have not liked the Unbuckers have criticized them precisely for not sounding like traditional PAF-style PUPs. While I don't know why someone would given the unambiguous name, that is precisely why I believe these PUPs are going to be the solution for my 25 1/2 inch scale length Godin LGX-SA (which I presently have Harmonic Design Z90s in but they're too hot for this particular guitar plus I already also have a set of Z90s in my Reverend Rocco which sound perfect there).
P.S. Do you recall the exact specs yours are wrapped to?
