    I've two Cozarts. They are cool. Some people who have never touched or heard one tell me , or I should say, imply to me, that they are junk :p

    I have a Gladiator tele clone w/Wilkinson pick ups & bridge...also a Vintage (brand) V6 strat clone w/ Wilkinson pickups/hardware...don't see (or hear) any need to swap them out....think their tele clones (V52 & V62) have some variation of the same pickups & I haven't heard of anyone switching them out...unless there's some specific sound that makes it worthwhile....

    Nothing wrong with Wilkie gear.

    I have a wilkinson bridge pickup that sounds great. Just micriphonic enough to feel like you are riding a not quite broken horse.

    Also, i love that kozart goldtop. I have been waiting for a while for the ebay seller to get more in.
    Do you still like it?

    I do, but I hardly ever play it. I seem to about never play for my own personal pleasure anymore, and that goldtop (and the snakehead, for that matter) is a bit of a one-trick pony, tone-wise. So for band stuff, I always find myself reaching for something more versatile.

    Wilkinson:

    I think their tuners might be the best dollar for dollar value on the market.

    Like their vintage-esque compensated saddles bridge on my Tele. Looks like a Tele, can be intonated = win/win.

    No idea about any of their other stuff.

    I want to grab one of those Snakeheads

    Are Ebay and Amazon the place to go?

    Thanks for the info. These are licensed by Wilkinson. So perhaps some kind of Chinese clone of a Wilkinson set for teles. I wonder if there is much of a difference

    Yes, I do. Am about to get into rockabilly style in the manner of James Burton. If I play bridge and pick/strum over bridge pick up, I can hear 'that sound'.

    Neck is quite buttery for jazz. However, I plan to mod the wiring to the original '52 wiring to blend bridge and neck which knocks out the middle position and gives a very dark neck - perfect for jazz
