GFS is a small online guitar parts store. They sell straps and bridges and stuff and also pickups. Their pickups are their most notable items. They have gained a bit of popularity among the budget guitar scene. Their most popular pickup is the GFS Crunchy PAT. I think the PAT in the name is a play on the old PAF name. These pickups are your typical hot rodded PAF but a lot better quality than what you would expect for less than 30 USD. The output on these pickups is 14k so they got a bit of punch to them. They also feature four conductor wiring so you can run them with split coils for single coil sounds if you felt like it. They have a hot rodded old school sound. They have the fat thick feel of an old PAF with enough output and hair on top to keep it from sounding muddy. These pickups are very well made for the price too. They are all properly potted and are not as noisy as you would expect from a cheap high output pickup. You can get these pickups in any look as well. You can get them with covers or you can get them uncovered. You can also pick from white bobbins to black bobbins to zebra bobbins. If you have a guitar and you know it needs some better pickups but the guitar just isnt worth shelling out 100 bucks for a Duncan or Dimarzio. These pickups are perfect for that. They are only around 25 bucks and they get you a good decent sound that is way better than what you get in most stock budget guitars. If these pickups had Seymour Duncan written on them people would gladly pay 60 or 80 dollars for them. But they dont and they only cost 22 dollars so you can easily but them in your beater or backup guitar without feeling like you just got ripped off.

jss1986's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I would not say that micro is equal to or approaching the height of the microphones from other manufacturers simply because each has its own micro personality but simply that the change of micro has given new life to my guitar
Farewell drafts agreements and the lack of definition hello harmonques exiting a precision and everything is all the fuss ...
if you have a scratch or between mid-range with a few original microphone faiblars do not hesitate saw the price at which it is you will lose nothing ca do that do him good
I would not recommend against by recess if you are already equipped with seymour Di Marzio or mieu GIBS
here I think it's all or substantially di moeleu to handle an aggressive happiness with a good output level for the bridge ...
What joy ...
and above all a quality price report copy is $ 75 with port 56 ...
How long have you use it?
What is so special that you like best? The least?
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, but I've played on gibson and I can say it sounds
How would you rate the quality / price?
With experience, you do again this choice?

DevadipEric's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I just installed a set neck + bridge to replace a SH2 and SH4.
Why replace these micro SD? because the SH2 never convinced me (I got too bland and too low compared to SH4)
I have the possibility of the splitter on my guitar (4 wires + screen).
My guitar has a mahogany body dug Corenne gills with 2 + table + mahogany al Saddle (West Raven RG450)
Measure impdance with multimtre:
micro bridge: Duplicate 13.92 K - 6.94 K splittbr /> micro neck: 10.07 K double - 5.10 K splittbr />
So at the risk of offending a lot, largely supplanting the microphone neck the SH2 (personality power, grain) whether double (hot and bold desire) as Splitter (although acute slamming)
and the bridge is equivalent to SH4 (however trslgrement infrieur.
The position intermdiare neck + bridge in Splitter is a killing.
The report quality price stupfiant 65 $ 90 (including shipping) or 45 for a set of microphones REFERENCE equivalent to the type, command directly on the site and reu ten days after s.
Without hsiter, I would do this choice. Besides, I'll order a set for my son Squier.
If snobbery trademarks not hit you, Do not hesitate, these are really great pickups.
