I have used several sets in various builds for people. Everyone is satisfied with the sound and quality of the pickups!!!!!Tom S. San Diego Ca
More Strat then a Strat!
So far they seem to just what I was looking for. Fender sound without Fender price. Makes my Stratocaster more of a Stratocaster. These are better then the original Pickups by far. I want to try some tele type next. I have a neck pickup out of a Jimmy Page Telecaster and I am sure a Planet Tone T type Bridge would fill the bill to pair to it.
Perfect Strat sounds
Bought this set to replace a cool rails bridge and a random middle and neck pickup in my 2009 MIM stratocaster with a maple neck. I wanted to go back to a classic strat sound, and WOW did this set of pickups get me there. This set is not too hot and offers no breakup from the pickup alone, just clear clean glassy strat tones in all positions. The RW hum-cancelling middle is especially welcome, and the tone has that glassy sparkle that was missing from my other pickups. Paired with a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue or a Twin, I'm in guitar nirvana. Runs well through any amp I've tried so far. Does exactly what you want out of a strat, from Stevie tones to hard rock 80's stuff. Don't be afraid to mess around with pickup height outside the normal range. These pickups are dynamic and will do what you want. UNBEATABLE for the price. Now I'm looking for other opportunities to get Planet Tone pickups installed in other guitars. HELLO telecaster build!!
