| Finally a real vintage "Filtertron" style pickup that fits into ANY guitar that can accomodate a P90 Soapbar!
Yes this means almost all of the imports with the weird mini hums- The
pickups themselves are the standard 1 1/8" x 2 5/8" mini size- And the supplied GFS Soapbar rings make them the EXACT same size as a classic P90 soapbar.
I dig the old Filtertrons, the vintage Dearmonds, the cool old Guild
pickups, the fat, warm stuff with the "kerrangy" high end. Pretty tough
to get that sound today in any kind of form factor that actually fits a
normal guitar, so we went in to the top secret GFS "skunk works" and had
some fun with magnetics. One year later we had the formula down pat.
So here's the story- These are Standard MINI- Humbucker Sized- so they
fit ANY guitar that accepts MINI-humbuckers on the familiar "Firebird
OK- so the problem with the old vintage pickups is that once you finally
get a guitar that has em- you really NEED MORE GAIN- We've all
experienced it- sounds cool, need more balls! Well ladies and gents-
we've wrapped up four completely different varieties.
Nashvilles use a particularly sweet and somewhat expensive breed of
ceramic magnet, and give you the fat vintage sound with the clear,
crisp, crunchy high end. Liverpools use ALnico V magnets for a warmer, sweeter sound.
The Vintage wound versions are wound to a solid 8.0K for the bridge and 7.2k for the neck. The fire-breathing HOT versions crank it to 12.8K for the bridge and 9.6K for the neck.
