  • Tornade MS Pickups Nocaster Pickups Tele '54s

    Tornade MS Pickups Nocaster Pickups Tele '54s - "Excellent!"

    09/01/14

    How long have you been using the product? 1 day. After a disconcerting start (which lasted several minutes), I think these pickups are very, very good! Did you try any other models before buying this one? No, only those of my Mexican Telecaste…

  • Q-Tuner Q2.0

    Q-Tuner Q2.0 - "Killer dynamics is an understatement"

    06/13/14

    At first, I was very disappointed that the new Q2.0 only comes in a black retrofit cover instead of being transparent like its predecessor the "classic" Q-tuner. What a bummer. That being said, the Q2.0 performed beyond my wildest expectations. The o…

  • Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s

    Tornade MS Pickups Humbucker P.A.F '59s - "Wow!"

    06/06/14

    I've been using them for two weeks. I know the Gibson 57 and Dimarzio 59 pickups and these certainly play in the same league! Due to the good reviews here and my bumping into a guitarist who had a Strat with Tornade SA, I got a 55 for my Tele Squ…

  • Bare Knuckle Pickups The Mule

    Bare Knuckle Pickups The Mule - "They need to be tamed!"

    04/19/14

    The Bare Knuckle pickups are handmade in England with specs that make them very (or maybe too) expensive! I have never been a fan of Seth E. Lover's invention, preferring single-coils and the P90. However, I became disillusioned with the arrival of …

  • GFS 1960's Repro Premium Alnico Strat Pickup Set

    GFS 1960's Repro Premium Alnico Strat Pickup Set - chavilbus's review

    02/12/14

    I've been using these pickups for six months on a Squier classic vibe. The quality is amazing, considering their price. The guitar has been transformed. I have the powerful and vintage sound I was looking for. There's no loss of precision in the midd…

  • GFS Alnico Fat Pat

    GFS Alnico Fat Pat - "A bit surprising..."

    02/03/14

    Interesting GFS pickups (they have a very comprehensive range of products, they have launched several Alnico II and V versions + all the rest...I invite you to visit their website ...). Very classy look! The particularity of the humbuckers I cabled? …

  • GFS Loudmouth Bridge

    GFS Loudmouth Bridge - "Not bad, but too muddled..."

    01/28/14

    I bought this pickup some time ago to install it on an Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I relied on various reviews praising this pickup... So, yes, it's not bad, but nothing transcendental...Its sound lacks some balance. It becomes muddled, shrill pret…

  • Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups

    Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups - "Can you deal with the hum?"

    09/18/13

    See if you guys can help me out, what would be the best noiseless alternative for the CS fat 50s middle pick up? I say this because I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, but I am too conscious of the hum, which I should not, since it is only used in clean tone…

  • GFS Classic II Alnico 2 Neck

    GFS Classic II Alnico 2 Neck - "For popular guitars! Absolutely amazing!"

    09/15/13

    -I'm not a "pro," but have enough experience with a soldering iron in my hands, which is why I often end up servicing guitars, like all people from my generation, those from the mid 1900's... - In jazz, electric guitars had just taken over the place…

  • Bare Knuckle Pickups The Mule

    Bare Knuckle Pickups The Mule - "Cold, me? Never..."

    07/14/13

    I recently mounted this set on a LP Studio 91, but I have been using BKP for over four years on other guitars. The original pickups (490R and 498T) aren't bad but, to be honest, they play in different leagues - definition, clarity, articulation, dyna…
