I'll be here all week
I have a set of Irish Tours and I agree with you, they are superb.
What do you have the Irish Tours in? They really smoke!
Late input here but just wanted to say there are a handful of sets that have that clear classic tone. The Fender 57/62 & 69s and some others from makers like Zexcoil but I just go with the Seymour Duncan SSL1s. Great tone and is just one of those that you can't go wrong.
Love my Don Mare White-0-Tones! Put them in my 1955 tribute Strat I put together recently.
I emailed Don and he recommended the Brown-0-Tones. Very tempting!
I looked at them too but I wanted the lower output readings of the White-0-Tones, but I am pretty certain I would have been happy with the Brown-0-Tones, too. I am a bit of a Don Mare fanboy. I also have the Hayrides in my 1953 tribute Tele I put together.
CS Custom '60's Strat, non-RWRP, vintage wiring.
I don't use sets.
I find individual pickups that sound good to me for each position in each guitar.
In one Strat I use a Seymour Duncan Twang Banger in the bridge, and Van Zandt Blues in the middle and neck positions.
In another I like a Texas Special in the bridge, Van Zandt Blues in the middle and an old 1980 Seymour Duncan "vintage wrap" in the neck.
In one Tele I like a Don Mare 0038 in the bridge, And a Van Zandt Strat pickup in the neck.
In another It's a Van Zandt Tele pickup in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan p-90 in the neck.
I have 15 guitars and they all have different combinations that complement each one: usually some combo from those brands plus a couple with Gretsch or TV Jones Filtertrons.
Lace Hot Gold 6k in all positions
Love the Hot Golds too, 6k all round.
However, I recently replaced them with Fender PV 65's........awesome pickups in their own right and highly recommended.
Whatever came in the guitar. If I didn't like how it sounded why would I buy it?
It's who we are, lol.....
A mate of mine recently bought a brand new, 5.0L Ford Mustang......He's swapped out the exhaust system, brakes, tires, and now just bought new axels! I asked him "didn't the car come with all that????"
Then, I thought of my countless time's opening up my Strat(s).....to each their own I guess. We all have hobbies and passions.
I buy them to play, not to play with. I scratch build model railway locomotives if I feel like getting my tools out.
Second the DAllen Tru 54's
My old boss had his entire basement retro fitted (by himself of course) into a railway system. Complete with everything! And I mean everything! It was so cool, even under some of the bridges he had, there were little "homeless people" (for lack of better term) with tiny little lit up fire's keeping them "warm".....the detail he spent was insane, with all the trees, ponds, and just general scenery involved. Countless hrs spent I'm sure.
