I am wondering if anybody else has had this problem? I have purchased two sets of Bill Lawrence tele pickups. A set of 280's for my tele and a set of 280/298. Well both of these sets get rid of the 60 cycle hum, but they both squeal to the point of practically knocking my fillings out of my teeth. They are great clean, but as soon as you add even a less moderate amount amount of gain, they just scream with feedback. I talked to Becky and she said that it was to do with the the tele not being sufficiently tight.(as in there may have been places that weren't tightened down enough around the bridge pickup) Well I tried that and it didn't work. I am wondering now if anyone else has ever had this trouble. It seems everybody else thinks these are (next to EMG's) the quietest single coils around. I am also a bit cheesed because the price on the website was incorrect. They charge more for the 298 than they do the 290 or 280 but when I called up Becky said, "Oh no we charge more for the 298" but I thought,oh well these folks are professionals, they are probably worth the extra money. I am beginning to think otherwise.
