    Has anyone tried GFS strat pickups and if so, what was your opinion of them?

    I have a set of GFS Texas pups in My Strat. I really like them. I've had Duncans, Fralins, Van Zandts and Texas Specials and feel these hold their own.

    I bought a set for my son's parts guitar I put together...(on a budget, ha).. I don't remember the set name, but they were the vintage ones.... sound very nice. For the money I think they are fantastic. I like the Duncan Alnico pro II's in my Hamer Daytona better, but a lot of that is probably just the guitar also.

    I've got a "Jimi" set in my Strat. They are lower than average output (which I like) and sound better than any non CS Fender pickup I've heard. I'd describe is mellow and midrangey, but still clear with no muddiness. If the prices were doubled I think they'd be the next big thing! Definitely a huge value.

    Use the search function...lots of great bang for buck reviews...be sure to check ebay as sometimes new can be had for a few bucks cheaper than the GFS homepage...

    :RoCkIn I have a set of Boston Blues Texas wound in my MIM strat. Sounds killer at a fraction of the price of the boutique brands. I can't see buying pups anywhere else.

    So use a Google search...

    Typing "gfs site:www.thegearpage.net" into a Google search window will get you the results you want.
