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.
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...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.
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.Kinda partial to original PAFs...
I've always been impressed with the Palir telecasters... It seems like they have the ideal tele grit, at least for my taste. They are equipped with Porter pick-ups. Could you share your expertise on those? I'm wondering what are the main differences with Don Mare pick-ups, and pick-ups from the Fender custom shop.As many of you who are familiar with me from other forums know, I am somewhat of a pickup connoisseur (over a hundred sets in my little collection as of right now) and I've been compiling a list of guitar pickup companies/winders for several years. I thought I would post it here, with links to their sites, for those interested.
