    Had a spare set of custom 69’ of my classic player strat after installing some David Allen tru ‘62 on that. I like the 69’s but don’t really love em since those seem to be to bright some times... still great pups but I was ready to try something new for my 1996 am std strat with maple fingerboard that was the final destination of the spare set whatever it was.
    I’ve seen lots of people recommending Rose pups in this forum so I decided to give em a try, wrote Ken and he recommended the bear claw set with alnico V for the style and sound I was looking for. Sold the 69’s today and ordered the rose set... I’ll update the post when I get them!

    I'm waiting for a set of Rose's too.
    Even with shipping and customs, they're cheaper than any comparable set in my area...

    I have 4 Rose-powered guitars:
    • Custom Strat Build w/ Robusta/Robusta/Buff Beauty set (custom overwound)
    • Custom Mustang Build w/ Rose Custom Mustang pickup set
    • Modded MIM Strat w/ Rose Mortica (SC-sized P90s)
    • Modded Epi Les Paul w Rose Black Velvet (HB-sized P90s)
    I guess you could say I'm a big fan of Rose Pickups :D

    Can you tell me a little about the Morticias please? They're what I'm waiting for, too!

    I have a set of Robustas with Buff Beauty bridge sitting in the cart on their site right now lol. If I get them they're going in a Squier SE I have laying around.

    I went ahead and pulled the trigger. Hopefully I get them sooner than the 1 month lead time they list on their site but we'll see. :)
