Anyone here use the Kinman Woodstock Plus pickups? What do you think of them? I've been muling over whether to replace my EMG SA's with those.
What do you like about the Woodstock more than the Hank Marvins??bspears said:Replaced my Kinman Hank Marvins with the Woodstocks and I could not be happier. I need to find a place to park the Marvins.:AOK
oxtone said:Also, did any of you guys get the Solder-less Kinman's, and/or the Neck Pickup Mix Pot, which enables 7+ sounds?

Jon, I have the AVn Blues set and the regular Woodstock set. The Blues are 'aged' and the Woodstocks are 'new', so they're a bit brighter, with a touch more clarity and detail. I like having both sets for the variety.I have a set of the AVn Blues on one of my strats and I like it. What might I be missing??
It's not too many choices at all - far from it. It gives you the neck + bridge combo, which is the Tele sound, and it's beautiful - also similar to a Les Paul in the middle position - very useful. Plus you get all three pickups together, which is very chimey and bell-like and great for rhythm tones - a bit quacky, but more refined - beautiful with chorus. Both are excellent additions to the 5 standard choices.Do you think the 7 way is just too many choices? I'm pretty much OK with just a 5 way switch. What sounds on the 7 way are usable? Are there any that are not? I've heard you can get a "Tele" type sound mixing the bridge and neck pickups.
