Guitarist, Sound Engineer – Room 335 Studio
The comparison to the stock pickups was dramatic. Crisp highs combined with beautiful well defined lows…I’ve been playing guitar for 35 years or so now and have played a ton of guitars during that time. Most recently, I’ve been on a quest for pure tone. New pedals, new cables, new guitars, new strings, but after all that effort, some character and tone were still missing.
Then by chance I happened to hook up with Smitty of MJS Custom Pickups. I’ve got them now in a Telecaster and a Les Paul Studio and the results exceeded my expectation…the comparison to the stock pickups was dramatic. Crisp highs combined with beautiful well defined lows. Soon a pair are going into my mid-80’s ES-175 which I know will make this now dull sounding jazz box come alive.
Smitty’s knowledge of electronics, hand wound pickups and all that goes into creating a great tone is as good as it gets! Thanks Smitty, and looking forward to getting the next set.
