Years ago a guy I knew here in Memphis had a vintage / resale store in midtown. One night when the store was closed we played every guitar in the shop and really cranked it up , he had Les Pauls, Teles, Strats, all kinds of cool stuff.
And to our suprise one of the best sounding guitars was one of those Harmony axes with those Dearmond pickups, it was killer.
I have thought about trying one of those pickups for a Tele neck pickup, I know some of the guys here at the TDPRI have done that.
They are HOT pickups for sure!
