I tried one of the neck versions. It may be my new favorite next pick up. Don’t know how to describe it really, it just sounds really good.
Disappointment to Delight
I ordered the Pasadena with a gold cover for my latest mod project, when it arrived the gold was missing in some areas, I took photos and sent them to Planet Tone. After a bit of back and forth I was sent a shipping label to return the pickup. My issue was purely concerning the aesthetic quality of what I paid extra for not the sound or construction since I had not installed it. The turn around time was amazingly quick and when the pickup arrived it was much better looking. The pickup was installed into my heavily modded Kramer Barretta Special (which was very fun project to do!) It has a single volume no tone knob, and the Pasadena sounds great, I'm very happy with the quality and character of it. I have no more superlatives, all my guitars have Planet Tone pups, and I expect a certain level of from quality from Planet Tone based on my experiences, outside of the initial cosmetic disappointment which was quickly and impressively rectified, Planet Tone delivered another great sounding pup. Planet Tone is always my first go to for pups. Thank you Planet Tone for taking the time to help and making me feel like a valued customer.
I purchased a set of single coils and was impressed with the build quality and sound. I bought this humbucker for a project guitar and it was exactly what I was hoping for. Great sound and great price.
