I know how you feel it's like a shroud has been lifted and a veil removed.
I'm discovering new worlds!

Which Strat did you mod and what amp are you running through?

I can't stop smiling ear to ear it's so sweet

I never met a Lollar pickup that I didn't like. When I'm looking for a replacement pu, I go and check out Jason's site first.

His service is also first rate. :AOK

Congrats and enjoy.

Love my Lollar Tele pickups. I really wish that he would make a "p90" in a humbucker casing. Fralin, Seymour Duncan, Stephens Design, Harmonic Design, and GFS are obviously doing pretty well with that niche. I think Jason would come up with something stellar.

i've been very pleased with my jazz bass set from jason...so much so that i considered buying lollars for a tele parts build, but my situation is such right now that i really need 'noiseless' variety

later on, i'll likely either have a 'nocaster' clone built up or swap some lollars in this one

i'm also pondering some imperials for my les paul...i'm impressed with his product:BluesBros

I share your excitement! I have a set of "Dirty Blondes" with Acme blender pot assembly waiting to go into my first Parts-o-caster build. The body is being painted by a local artist and I can't wait to put it together and try it out.

I have the same set (BF/BF/Special) in my American Standard - those and a callaham block really transformed the guitar (there had been a set of Fralin Vintage Hots in there for the preceeding 15 years). Big improvement - a very beautifully balanced set of pickups.

I have Lollars in 2 Custom Shop Strats. The Blackface pickups are my favorites. And the Lollar P90's in a Collings 290; they're real nice! I don't think Jason makes a bad pickup.

i just bought a used torino red clapton strat and it looked way too starsky and hutch for me(red n white) so i put a gold anodized pickguard on it w/ black lollars.....i currently have a wizard amp but the band i'm using the strat w/ want me to use their fender blues deluxe amp(godawful)..and thats so hard getting a good sound out of that thing..loads of overdrive and NO susutain.....these lollars are a bit microphonic so i may send them back to get potted some more as jason once said he could do that...i play w/ drive alot

Wow, lots of love for the Lollars!

Unfortunately I may have gotten a lemon-set of P90s...way too much hum (compared to the Seymour Duncans) and too "hi-fi" for me. Specs look right, but again, different strokes I guess.

After the repoting if your still not happy I would take a look at Peter Florance's stuff. I wasn't going to plug his work cause you sounded satisfied but if you aren't you owe it too youself to give VooDoo a look see.

I think he has 6 stock strat flavors and any number of variations there of custom.

I hope re potting does it for you.

My experience with Jason's P-90s, also - the "Hi-fi" can be a very good thing in the right guitar, but I was lookinmg for a more authentic P-90 tone and found it in spades with a Curt Novak set. Just about every P90 I've tried has been pretty noisy, with the exception of the Harmonic Design.

Lollar Blondes are fantastic. Alnico II magnets are the ticket in Strats I think.

got a lollar vintage in the neck and an early GVCG/lollar in the bridge of my parts tele and its holds its own with my humbucker guitars in terms of fatness.

The Lollars are killer pups, try his buckers in your rig of choice.
