    Hear how Fralin Twangmasters give my Gibson's tone more of a Tele spank,,
    They really shouldn't call 'em "twangmasters" because that sort of implies C & W music..
    When in fact, this pickups are perfect most every genre...

    Very cool playing. I almost thought it was strat!

    Would they be able to replace a fender axe, you think?

    Hot singer too ;)

    Yes they are are .... but it's retains true single coil sound because of the domino placement ..

    Man, those sound good! I think I'll get one for the neck of my Am Tele Deluxe as an alternate to the SCN.

    sounds great Joe!

    I have to admit I'm not 100% happy with the stock pickups in my semi hollow, but haven't dealt with it partially since it's a pain to swap in new pickups.

    those twangmasters sound wonderful :aok

    Thanks for digging on the playing ..
    For sure they can help another brand to replace a Fender axe ...


    Thanks Uberschall

    Ya know .... from owning a couple axes with the SCN.
    I would say these do what they are supposed to do even better


    Know what what you mean ...
    if you don't have a backplate over the internal wiring,
    they you have to take them out through the f-holes,
    solder and then put them back in ... a real PITA

    Thanks for digging za music A440

    Nice playing as always Lucidology!
    Hey was your Guitar a Pat Martino? Sounded great.

    BTW: I have a 336 and was debating getting a Mesa LS classic vs. a special? Have you compared those 2 amps with any Gibson semi or hollowbodies?

    Cheers.

    Joseph those Fralins sound great! You know what a fan I am of P-92s but the Twangmasters have just a bit more snap on the top.

    Of course your insane groove helps more than just a bit. Nice!!!

    Thanks Stratlad ...
    Yes, that's the Pat Martino Gibson ... the original 57's in it made for a dull sound IMO...
    but the Fralins really kicked this great playing Axe into gear ... really came alive ...

    What do you mean 'a special" ... is that a mesa amp I'm unaware of?

    Astute ... for sure she's a musician too ... :)

    Great thanks Ken ... curious which Fralins you use?

    Thanks Brian .. love those P-92s ... was originally planning on putting 92's in the PM... but was very curious to give the Twangmasters a go ...
    Lindy Fralin's description on his website of the T's was even more to my liking...

    Thank you very much ...

    8,000 on both the neck & the bridge ...
    Seems to give a little more quack in the middle position by having both of them the same ....
