Fender CS '54's.
Rumpelstilskin “Miller’s Daughter” set.
Just put on some Fralin Vintage Hots in my ‘96 Strat Plus. I had some Texas Specials in there but never loved them. Kinda muddy, flat, and uneven from string to string and from pup to pup. Dropped in a loaded pickguard from Fralin including a baseplate on the bridge and wow! The guitar sings now, sounds so much better. I recently picked up a new Swart STR Tremolo and really liked it but felt it was just shy of being everything I wanted tone wise....turns out it was the pickups and these Fralin fixed that. Sounds so good now!
Also, had a slight issue with my loaded pickguard where one tone control isn’t doing anything. Maybe something I did during install, maybe a bad pot, maybe something else. Either way, sent a quick email off about it to see if they had suggestions for what to check out (wiring isn’t my strong suit). Within a couple hours I received a call from Lindy Fralin himself explaining possible causes, apologizing, and offering to fix it if I wanted to return it or to help walk me through fixing it myself when I was ready to take it apart again. That is some damn good customer service!
Very impressed both by the service and the sound quality!
10/10, would buy again!
I like the pure 59s but that's just me.
Are you talking about the Microcoils with the neo magnets or the alnico magnets?
Either... such subtle differences are insignificant...unless ya think so... it's like having to choose between Adrianna Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio to be stranded on a desert isle..... are they alike? Oh hell no, do ya care OH double hell no..
No, it's just my curiosity. Wondered why there would be the two different magnet choices if they are so similar. I have only heard Microcoils on Youtube, so it's kinda hard to judge.
American Standard/ Series (Fender pickups).
Count me in as well. I've posted several times about the beauty of these pickups.
D. Allen Tru-62 set. They just have “it”; whatever it is, they’ve got it!
My vote goes to EMG DG-20 pickup set. I have a set in my Strat. Almost too clean for me.
I have a set of Rose Heritage (Alnico 2, no stagger) that keeping finding their way back into my guitars.
