Hi Bill, I love these pickups(Vintage Pro Single Coil Set). I bought them for a Fender Bullet I've had for around 25 years. It's a very comfortable guitar..., but it came with some pretty wimpy electronics and I'd never been able to get much of a sound out of it. I installed the Vintage Pros last weekend and can't describe the difference your pickups have made. This is now a great guitar. I can't put it down. I've been playing it through an old Fender Princeton Reverb, which now sounds soooo full and classic.... I'm very impressed with your pickups and will share my exuberance with all my friends. ..... it's really refreshing to buy something that truly lives up to the expectations. - Dan G. Los Angeles CA.
I'm lovin the pickups... It's all good stuff. Especially the strat, I'm enjoying playing this guitar again. - T. Pekkala - Marty Ford Experience
