Couldn't put my Guitar down!!
Whoa! That's all I can say, Whoa. I'm a 50 year seasoned Musician, seen that, done that. These DG's play as described. Excited. Calling all my music associates and Luthiers.
Gilmour Tone For Sure
I’ve got the 69 Voodoo Pickups, the DG set, a 60’s PAF, and my friend bought two other sets when he heard the change in my guitar. These pickups allow the guitar to breathe a bit more, and make it sound more expensive. The bridge pickup is meaty, with the highs still maintained. They’re crunchy, but smooth, and very articulate. Clarity is there, and they have that musical tone in the magnets. I had Chinese ‘hand made alnico’ pickups, and these bough a new quality to the sound, and made it sound way better than I expected. The care and consistency taken in construction puts Planet Tone in the same league as Seymour Duncan, and I actually prefer these pickups over SD. There’s enough spectrum in choice, and if you can’t find your tone here, you won’t find it anywhere. Once you’ve tried Planet Tone, the rest can go home. I’d also like to see a 70’s staggered set, like a 70-74 era Strat. Rock on.
DG makes my guitar sound like EVH
These pickups are super clear and have tone to match. When I play on the bridge position I keep thinking I’ve got a PAF there and get that early EVH crunch. It doesn’t get muddy and has a very good thickness to brightness balance. I’ve bought 4 different pickup sets from PT and they are the go-to place. The care and detail in construction shows how much steady skill and appreciation of what makes a good pickup. Great stuff!
