electric pickups
Review for:Strat Deluxe (Passive dual-blade humbucker)
Purchase price of 130 USD
Rating: 4.0
Comments:This pickup is great in the neck position for a blues sound! I alsohave the pickup installed in the mid position, but I find that I onlyuse the mid in positions 2 or 4.
For which styles and positions is this pickup (un)suitable: Rock and Blues
This is a great sounding pickup in the neck position! I am rating it downto a 4 because I find the installation to be difficult. The wires areof a thin guage, and the insulation is hard to peel off. All the wiresare then bundled together in thick insulation with a tough foil whichis hard to peel back. I feel that the thinness of the wire does leadto a reduction in reliability. Once installed though, this pickup willmake beautiful sounds in the neck position! I plan on keeping the Bardenin the neck position, but I am considering alternatives to the Bardenin the mid position to get more variety out of my guitar.
