  • Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat

    Seymour Duncan SSL-4 Quarter-Pound Flat - "No strat 'quack'"

    02/18/18

    I've had good experience with Seymour Duncan products, and bought these to go in my frankenstrat at neck and middle positions. I wanted something with that strat 'quack' but with more output to blend well with the humbucker in the bridge position. I …

  • Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups

    Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups - Wikoléo's review

    11/09/14

    I've been using it for 5 months. Really awesome! Great punch, nice sensitivity, a nice Fender sound! You can go from blues to rock and even punk, psych... It's that good. It's true that the bridge pickup is grinding, but I love it! You need to …

    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…

    Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickups - limoges87's review

    10/16/12

    I'VE BEEN USING IT FOR 2 YEARS. IT'S MORE THAN ALL RIGHT. BESIDES THE 50 BRIDGE PICKUP, I MOUNTED AN SSL5 DUNCAN, LIKE GILMOUR, TO HAVE A COMBINATION. THIS GIVES ME GILMOUR IN THE NECK POSITION, CLAPTON IN POSITION 2, A NICE SOUND FOR BALLADS IN POSI…

  • DiMarzio DP420 Virtual Solo

    DiMarzio DP420 Virtual Solo - "A great high-power single coil with classic looks."

    09/13/12

    I call this pickup a "sleeper" because it preserves the look of the Strat but cranks up the output and tone of the bridge pickup into nice crunch and, with a little help, distortion. The DP420 Virtual Solo is an excellent alternative for anyone who d…

  • DiMarzio DP423 Injector Bridge

    DiMarzio DP423 Injector Bridge - nickname009's review

    02/01/12

    I can't believe nobody's reviewed this one yet! I think these new single coil pickups have to be some of the best out there today with it's noiseless technology. Not only is it super quiet, but it still actually sounds like a single coil. The older m…

    EMG S - nickname009's review

    01/30/12

    I'm not sure why I didn't review this pickup earlier, I've had it in a lot of used guitars I've previously owned without consciously knowing it was the S pickup that was actually in the guitar! I can remember this pickup specifically in the neck posi…

  • EMG S

    EMG S - "great great great"

    01/29/12

    A little background. I have used one of these in the middle position of an Ibanez rg550 along with 2 EMG 81's for about 6 years now. That alone should attest to the staying quality of this pickup. I must say up front. I have never had any issues …

  • DiMarzio DP117 HS-3

    DiMarzio DP117 HS-3 - "The Former Yngwie signature pickup"

    11/20/11

    For a long time this is the pickup you went to if you were looking for a Yngwie sound. This is the Dimarzio stacked single coil formerly used by Yngwie malmsteen. Since it is stacked single coil that means it is noiseless since it is technically a hu…

    Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM Fury - "The new Yngwie pickup"

    11/20/11

    The Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM FURY is the new Yngwie Malmsteen signature pickup set from Seymour Duncan. Yngwie used Dimarzio pickups for a long time but has just recently switched to the Seymour Duncans. Although its a different company the pickups…
