VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Overall: I've been on the fence about trying this set versus some of the other very good options available for a few months. Finally pulled the trigger and I'm very glad I did! The sound is all I'd hoped for, and then some. Classic old school warmth and twang, and then you hit the button and amp it up with more edge. Each of the 6 sound options is unique, complimentary and usable. 6 usable flavors that go together well. The other two things that jump out are the complete and total silence. It's almost unnerving at first if you're used to that steady single coil hum (even coming from Fender "Noiseless" pickups). You don't notice the hum until it's gone. The other thing is just how articulate these pickups are. Clean or dirty, every note rings through. If you're sloppy, these pickups will tell on you quick! Roll off the volume knob (which is silky smooth btw, as is the tone), no tonal changes at all. If you're one to push the presence on your amp, these kinda come with that sparkle, so you might be pulling that back out. If I had any knock on these it would be that the pickup wires could be a little longer. Another 1-2" would make installation so much easier. They are long enough, but a bit more would still be nice. The overall installation is pretty easy. The Tele set instructions specifically, could be a little better (some Tele specific issues aren't really addressed), but they're not bad. It took me a minute to figure out I wasn't soldering the pickups to the 3 way switch but to a mini board instead. Good design choice, but it's not obvious what the schematic is showing you at first. I could see someone screwing that up. Also, how to get the "thing" out of the jack hole that your standard Tele jack connects too isn't immediately obvious, and it does have to come out. Turns out it's really pretty easy, but I did have to do a little web search to figure it out (winging it isn't a good idea with a guitar you love after all). Overall, I'd say it's an excellent product and I'm very satisfied. The only things that could be improved are truly minor issues with the installation. If you take your time and think it through, it's dead simple. The sound is what truly matters and that's a real winner!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
