GREAT pickups - what a surpise
To start I have to mention that I have been a sworn Seymour Duncan user for more than a decade. I have SD pickups in about 15 guitars (JB, Pearly gates, Alnico II pro’s, Jass, 59 P-rails, Customs, Slash set to name a few). Now what a surprice this purchase was. I was totally blown away by these pickups. I never expected that. These are definitely vintage voiced but with extra added punch and a lot of twang for a humbucker. They are also very clear and transparent. Very unique sounding as well. They have very pronounced highs with punchy midrange and relaxed lows. The closest comparison I can give is Seymour Duncan 59 with added midrange and relaxed lows. I love them. Clean they are fantastic, distorted they raw. I put them in PRS SE with a tremolo and the guitar was re-born – clear ringy cleans with never heard before twang – so musical. Distorted it reminds me a bit of SD Pearly Gates- bright but with some rudeness. Great job with this product. My first off-shore pickups were the Dragonfires vintage buckers – muddy and uninspiring. My second pair was Entwistle HV58 –better but still muddy overall not happy with both. Later I bought the first off-shore GREAT pickups – Giovanni GVH-1, which are a fantastic PAF reproduction. Now I discovered these Eric Customs that perfectly compliment the Giovanni’s for half the price. The build quality is great – solidly build with the right materials. I will not recommend them for modern metal, but for everything else that are great. For modern metal check the Eric Custom neodymium's they nailed that sound as well. Thanks EY again for a great product fast shipping and excellent service!
