Anyone tried 'em? Opinions?
mbratch said:Patrick, I've had an eye on the V60LPs for my 1991 American Strat (to replace the current Blue/Silver/Red Lace sensors I've used for 14 years). How does each switch position sound? Are all the positions excellent?
Marty s Horne said:I've played 2 Suhrs with V60 pickups and I think they're one of the best sounding strat type pickups I've ever heard. If I had a strat, I would have either the Suhr pickups or the Detemple/Lollar Sweetspot pickups in it. I like both equally well.
LP = "Low Peak", so the peak of the output signal occurs at a lower frequency.ButchR said:Ok! I gotta ask. What is the difference between the V60 LP and V60? I think I have V60's in my Tyler that is on the way.
I did this swap with my SSC Classic, it's a bit more upper mids to highs.Tomo said:I am interested in trying Suhr V60. I may get more top end.
beNsteR said:i've got a set of regular V60's in my custom Van Zandt strat with BRW fingerboard, big 'D' flamed maple neck and 1-pc swamp ash body. they sound fat, punchy and alive in this guitar! They're fat and greasy sounding, but do not have the nasty 'mid-hump' of Fender Texas Specials. They have tons of quack and chime. Every position sounds great. Best strat pickups i've ever played!
Others i have tried and compared these to:
-Fender Texas Specials (too harsh and aggressive, not enough quack or chime)
-Van Zandt Vintage Plus and Fender Fat 50's (these are very similar sounding to each other. nice, similar concept and output, but just not as greasy and 'alive')
-Fender AV 57/62 (these are nice and vintage sounding but not as fat, bridge pup wimpy)
-Kinman 62/62/SCn Blues set (too dark sounding for me, nowhere near as alive, too much lack of single coil characteristics for me, chime is not there.)
-Seymour Duncan Custom Staggered set (way too overwound and hot, too dark, not enough chime)
Just my 2 cents
