    I'm searching for a pickup similar to that of the Gibson Dirty Fingers, but I can't really justify spending the $145 to buy those. Any ideas of a cheaper alternative that will provide a similar tone? Any suggestion is helpful.

    There’s a Canadian guy winding pickups and he has a similar pickup actually. His prices are extremely good too! Vineham pickups is the name of his company. Here’s a link to his humbucker section. Prices are in Canadian too. http://www.vineham.com/humbucker_pickups.html

    Cool post, @duaneflowers! Thanks! And kudos for including DS pickups on there. They're good peeps and don't always get a shout-out.
    Another great brand (for me at least) is Defter. The dude is great to work with and does an amazing job for an insanely good price. All hand-mande, with locally-sourced materials. I definitely recommend his strat pups (haven't tried anything else yet).
    Nice of you to do this. Big help for us. In fact, I'd like to ask you a couple questions, if I may:
    1-how different are D.Allen's stratcats and voodoos? What would you say are their strengths and weaknesses?
    2- does BK have a scooped set?

    Thanks again, mate.

    Cheers

    Could you guys tell me about Suhr Aldrich neck? Decent cleans if you roll the volume down?

    In a Singlecut type guitar, no coil tap.

    Just ordered a set of Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special pickups, listen to the neck pickup between 0:43 and 1:03

    Impressive list. I am now working with Thomas from Cream T pickups and he is manufacturing from my premises in the UK. We are going to be the sole worldwide seller. We are currently building a new website but in the meantime if anyone wants to check them out here is a link to our site: https://www.soundaffects.com/search/cream-t-m453/cream-t

    We have loads of exciting things in the pipeline.

    I had (well, still have, but it's not in any of my guitars now) the Aldrich neck pickup and found it wonderfully warm with gain and clean when the volume is down. Actually liked it a lot more than the bridge, which is typically revered by people. I may be afraid of sheep, but can vouch for this pickup.

    Your comment just reminded me of a very cool and small pickup company from the UK - evil sheep pickups. Their classic strat offerings are pretty solid. Played a strat with a set once and liked it. The hendrix set also seems very intriguing. I might give it a try. I was told he's really good at the whole pole piece mix and match thing...

    Hi Duane, so how do the Monty's compare to other vintage PAF types? I also own a set, and am curious. I will never swap out the Monty's as i think they are fantastic, but am still wondering how they stack up, to say, the Fralins.:)
