- How long have you been using the product?
I must have bought these pickups about two years ago, by chance, to replace the damaged pickups of my old Strat copy.
- Which features do you like the most / the least?
These pickups have a high output level, a snappy "texas" sound.
- Did you try any other models before buying the product?
My Strat copy had a Seymour Duncan at the middle position for some time. It seems to me that the GFS pickups are worth almost the same as the SD.
- How would you rate the product's value for money?
It's hard get a better value for money.
- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?
In light of the quality of these pickups and the extensive GFS product range, I think Guitar Fetish will become my regular supplier.
I've been using this set for 6 months on a Mexican Stratocaster with mighty mite neck. From my new DIY perspective and as a reaction to the exorbitant prices of guitars by renown brands, I decided to build my own guitars as long as the total price doesn't exceed 500 euros. So I went looking for alternative solutions to branded products. That's how I found the GUITAR FETISH website. The way they work is they have the parts assembled in China based on designs conceived in the US and then sell the products to end customers without any middlemen involved, thus cutting the overall costs. That's how you can get 3 Strat pickups for 60 bucks. And I must say the sound is stunning! The output level is higher than with the original Strat pickups and they have more clarity and definition! Under the FENDER range you can find a higher-end series (TEXAS), starting from $150.
I've been playing Stratocaster for twelve years after having used other models and brands (GIBSON, GRETSCH). If, like me, you want a good guitar that's an unbeatable value for money, then you should consider the GUITAR FETISH pickups very seriously!
I've used them on a Strat for about 2 years.. These pickups have an excellent quality for their price. They sound as good as the original Fenders (I had my first one back in 1965). The different pickups are clean, although the central one deserves a special mention for crunch sounds. Don't hesitate if you want to get good pickups at a ridiculous price.
