    Anyone tried them? What do you think??

    65's good for Hendrixy tone with tight and piano like low string response?

    Thanks!!

    I've been using John's V60LP pick-ups for a few years now & I couidn't be happier with them. I have turned a few guys from my hometown on to them and they're digging them to. They have a very even tonal balance with a great combination of both warmth & sparkle without ever getting shrill. I just ordered a Suhr Classic with the Silent Single Coil System & I decided to try the V54 pick-ups.

    Wow, I didn't know about anything other than the V60 and V60LP, I have the V60LP set loaded in my Custom Shop Fender Relic and love them. I would like to see a breakdown of all the S type pickups Suhr is offering with tonal and output descriptions.

    For those that have tried both, how do you compare v60 and v60lp?

    What about V54? Where does that fall.

    Also, with either the aftermarket Silent Single Coil or with a custom Suhr, what kind of adjustments do you have to make to the coil if you decide to swap from one of these to another?

    Thanks!

    Ed what are the Inductance/Resistance specs?
    All Alnico 5?
    Can you list them by output (low to high)?

    When I first heard about the Silent Single Coil system it was described as designed to mate with the output of the V60LP pickups. I'd imagine the strength of the pickup if too far off would slightly reduce the effect of the SSC system, this may not be the case, but if it is, do the other "S" pickups in the Suhr line effect the performance of the SSC system?
