I just thought I should post a review of the Goodwood my LP Standard since everyone has been so great with advice over the past year. I know I drove a lot of people crazy with repetitive questions and for that I apologize. Everyone has been great and too patient with me. I went around and around with Roy and Jim till I finally installed the Goodwood bridge and man I struck gold. I learned just how hard it is to give recommendations with regards to pickups because you never know exactly how it will sound until you play it in your guitar......so the best thing I found was to take the recommendations and make a choice on a purchase and test it out in my guitar, at rehearsal and at gigs. Going forward, I promise to not ask repetitive questions and rather I will test something out for myself and report back. Hopefully this will be much more helpful to a lot of people on the forum. Anyway, for me LPs have a lot of natural punch and midrange and the highs can sometimes be edgy. A goodwood with it's tight bottom, natural mids and smooth highs seem to sit so well in my LP Standard which is a 2003 model. The Goodwood and all of Jim's p'ups seem to compress so well and so natural compared to many others I've tried including PRS, Gibson, Duncan, Dimarzio and Rio Grande. All of those others were decent offerings, but I knew it was a different league once the Goodwood was in place. The Goodwood, although rich and warm really stands out in the mix without any harsh tones which I find a hallmark of Jim's pickups - you can't make em sound harsh and they are all quiet. Juicy comes to mind a lot with Jim's pickups. I remember thinking the Rio BBQ had some harsh qualities which were gone wonce the Goodwood was installed. The Goodwood has a big, tight bas....but it still works in a Les Paul; just watch the EQ. The mids seems very even and natural to my ears and those highs are thick and creamy. She can get aggressive as you raise her close to the pickups and she tightens even more! Radius those pole pieces and raise her to about 2/32" and look out. With the right amp settings I can pull off Led Zep to Rush to Megadeth...blues....jazz...metal.... ..you name it. Cleans are rich and full. I also noticed a nice improvement when re-installing Roy's RS pots/caps. these components took it up a notch. I swear the caps made a difference even with everything on 10.......just more pure in tone. The Goodwood sounds very refined and rich, yet oh so versatile. It really is as good as it gets. For something hotter, the Shredder also was amazing in this LP. Hope this helps someone searching for a new pickup.
