I am no salesman, Doc. My opinion is they are good pickups. I will probably use them in a future application. The neck can get Gilmour Stratorrific when clean and the bridge position sounds fine when the signal is clipped with warm, rather than overly harsh overdrive. I love the guitar too (
yes I am biased).
This project has been a long time coming and I guess this is a little different from other recent builds for at least one reason. The others were a little anticlimactic once completed, but this one has me feeling just as excited about playing it as I had been about getting it done.
Something that kinda changed my original plan with the nut was the slightly thicker finger board combined with big and tall frets. The R2 nut would have needed a super thick shim, so I went with the slightly wider spaced and taller R3. Works great.
I don't usually find a use for this smiley
, but I like so there you have it.
