Is Guitarheads decent quality?

I am thinking of making an order from Guitarheads for hardware and electronics for a tele build. Anybody have opinions on their gear?

I have some guitarheads humbuckers and I'm not very impressed with the sound. They are very muffled its like having a wet towel over your amp. If you would wanna go the cheap route I highly suggesd GFS pickups at guitarfetish.com really great stuff for really cheap and customer service is pretty good I hear too!

I bought a pair of the Guitarheads "Alnico Supreme" humbuckers for a project guitar I made last year, and I'm pleased with the sound. They're very clear and powerful. I tend to play cleanly a fair amount, I use the neck pickup a lot, and I'd buy that set again in a heartbeat. Here's a pic (they're mounted in the Guitarheads holographic pickup bezels):

7 strings sound awesome

I have a 7 string I mounted two bridge pickups in as well as a dimarzio evolution in.

the hex7's sound as good if not better IMHO. They are hot as BLEEP.

They split well too to get good basic, but hot single coil sounds. You can dial in with your tone controls from there.

Cheep too.

I just bought a double rail neck pickup from then and it's awesome. Don't be put off by the low price.
