This x100! Mark has unlocked the secret to a great sounding Pre CBS pickup. I’ve got two sets of the 60’s that turned my Strats into tone monsters and now I’m gassing for a set of the 50’s to go into a maple necked build I want to do. Just outstanding.Most everything Mark Foley does! His most recent 50’s and 60’s Strat PreCBS sets are phenomenal!!!
T-Tops are why I will never get rid of my 78 The Paul (aka The Walnut Wonder).The original Gibson T-Tops in my '79 Silverburst. These have destroyed every other pickup I've owned (Bare Knuckles, Duncans, Wizz, WCR, other Gibson Models, Suhr etc etc.) So musical and clear while being raunchy all at the same time.
My goto bridge pup. It just has THE SOUND.The old classic: Seymour Duncan JB. The most consistent bridge pickup ever made.
Yeah, I'd phrase it more "A guitar is only as good as the pickups you put into it."i dunno about that, i stuck a super distortion in a squier that cost almost half as much and it enhanced the tone exponentially
