Has anyone tried them? I'd like to know how they sound.
I have some in a MIJ JM; they sound great. I also have a 1965 JM, the GFS PU's sound a little better than the vintage ones; a little more sparkle and depth.
I highly recommend them.
Are yours the vintage wound or overwound?
I believe there are some reviews on www.offsetguitars.com
Thanks, that is very helpful,
I have an MIJ Jazzmaster and want to upgrade the pickups. I'd love to get Lollars, but they're too pricey for me at this time.
I got the vintage wound. My MIJ JM is a sweet looking and playing guitar, but the orignal PU's were a weak link. The GFS PU's really made it a great sounding guitar.
well I know this is an old and dusty thread (cough cough, dust dust)..I had read here in
these here pages about how the bridge pickup on the squier jm kind of sucked. So
I got a GFS bridge pickup.. Just installed it.. Basic impression is the pickup has a
more 'clear' sound, without being sharp or brittle.. Do I like it better then the
DD pickup that came with guitar.... Well sorta.. Am I going to leave it in there...
Well maybe, probly.....Overall would say is an improvement. Also ordered a STAYTREM
bridge.... cost 65 pounds (pounds of WHAT??) TRanslated into an even C note
American money.....THe bridge was the one thing about the guitar that AI was not
happy with. So am looking forward to the British unit.. Will let you folks know.
Stupid me also sprayed a bunch of 'Deoxit' on the pots thinking that was the cause
of the buzzing sound. Was not. And the deoxit gummed up the neck pickup pots and wheel
controls to the degree that those
controls no longer worked at al.. Bummer...
Had to take pickguard off and clean pots, Got use of switch and wheel controls back..
SO far this 'inexpensive' guitar is getting pretty spendy with improvements.. Still
cheaper then the Japanese model, but getting there....
