    Members of Gearpage!

    I recently purchased set of Grey Wolves with zebra bobbins.Thanks to
    rockin'lespaul for recommending Wolfe.I put them in my '95 Hamer USA
    Studio,and the guitar sounds fantastic.This is my third set of pickups
    to go in the guitar.I tried WCR Darkbursts,and a set of Fralins.None
    however,came close to the Wolfetones.I would like to thank Wolfe per-
    sonally for taking the time and having the patience for all my many ques-
    tions.He recommended Alnico 2 magnets,and i could'nt make up my mind
    between those and Alnico 5.So,what does he do.He included a extra set
    of A5 mags in case i decided to swap!Wonderful!He also gave me a dis-
    count because i am a member of the Gearpage.His customer service and
    dedication to his craft are second to none.I would highly recommend
    these or any of his other fine models to anyone wanting to make the
    switch for a better sound.

    Thanks.

    Yes, Wolfe is the real deal. He does not get enough attention like Lollar, Fralin et. al.

    I've got some Marshallheads that sound amazing, and a buddy of mine's guitar has some of his P90s, which kick butt as well.

    I just put one of his P90's in my 50's LP Junior resto and it kills! Also recommended to me by Rockinlespaul. Thanks Fred!

    AND I also got a good deal for being a GP member! :AOK

    When I wanted the tone that has been in my head for 25 years, he gave it to me when the Caretaker was born. My signature pickup does everything I could possibly ask for. Page, Beck, Clapton, Kossoff,Gibbons, Green, Moore. Blues with ATTITUDE. Patterned after the Peter Green/Gary Moore burst tone.

    Uh Oh, is Wolfe the new WCR?! :rolleyes:

    By the way are the Wolfetone pickups potted?

    No. He doesn`t pot them but he might by request. They are designed to be unpotted.

    I'll vouch for that.
    Turned my Santana into the best sounding LP I've ever owned. ;)

    Wolfe is awsome. I have a mixed set of Fenris (neck) and Timbrewolfe (brdige) hums in my TCM Taurus Standard. Talked to Wolfe at length about what I was looking for, ended up with this mixed combo and I love it.

    Just curious,

    any of you Wolfetone lovers ever tried Lollars and could compare them or give any thoughts.

    Thanks,

    As one of the first owners of a set of Marshallheads, Wolfe is the man.:JAM

    How do you think a Dr. Vintage neck w/ a Marshallhead bridge would sound?

    Killer.:AOK The combo would work great considering the Dr. Vintage is a 7.5K output pup. You'd have a sweet thick neck tone and a smokin' rockin' bridge pup.:dude
