goal here was to recreate the cool vintage sounds. Not just the same
boring PAF stuff that everyone's doing- after all- how many times can a
grown man play "Stormy Monday"?? No- 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- four flavors, three
finishes, all bitchin...
So here's the story- These are Standard Humbucker Sized- so they fit ANY guitar that accepts humbuckers.
you can now get the cool vintage sound into your archtop, your semi
hollow, yor Les Paul, your cheap import, Even your Strat- don't matter
to me, takes a humbucker- THIS WILL FIT.
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. The 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.
The Liverpools add even warmer Alnico V magnets. All use correct
Formvar enamel wire, vintage nickel adjustable polepieces, shielded
metal cases and four conductor wiring. The Standard versions are about
35% hotter than vintage pickups, the "HOT" versions about 50% hotter!
