    Guessing he is going to have a signature of each type of pickup before it is all over.

    A strat is a strat. Just get a guitar with a humbucker.

    But, I am contradicting myself. My tele has a single coil sized rail humbucker.

    I'm not sure what to make of these... I mean is Billy playing a strat with these installed now?

    Be a real shame if he isn't....


    But if they are any better than his mexican lottery strings then maybe they are ok, cause the strings are Terrible with a capital T.

    They were just announced, so it is unlikely anyone outside of the company has any experience with them. Most likely they are like Little 59s with more high end...like a Little Pearly Gates.

    Just googled about a thousand images of Billy and not a Strat to be found.

    Has he ever played a Strat, I'm sure he has.

    Another Seymour Duncan marketing.

    If you've seen the Premier Guitar video. All his guitars are processed to sound like his LP Pearly Gates. At least live.

    Does Seymour really know about all this?:confused:

    I saw a vid of his rig rundown. They try and eq it so every guitar he plays sounds as close to the same as possible. Maybe he wants to get closer with a Strat.

    He is using the pickups on his current solo tour.

    Why anyone would really want to copy BGs current tone is beyond me....
    Nothing against BG , but he has more endorcements than Johnny Hiland these days

    ...It just seems ....sorta like.... the time to care about BG's rig was 30 years ago or something.....
    Nailing Blue Jean Blues and Tush is one thing... or even Sharp Dressed Man.... BITD.... but jeez ... us folks that remember the Good Tunes are dying off. Maybe that's the idea. Those of us left, with some coin in pocket are supposed to buy more crap. (& then leave it to kids and grandkids who say...... Billy who?
    ZZ what?)
    Well, anyway. Back to practicing.... with the appropriately dated peso. On my .0007 ga. strings...... (which last only 30 seconds... 'cuz a the peso.... and .... wait... lemme adjust my knit hat...)

    I'll never understand what seems to be an infinite number of ways to wrap wire around a magnet.

    Abigail Ybarra sits and operates a machine that wraps wire around a magnet, but somehow the guy sitting next to her using an identical machine, identical magnets and identical wire is making pickups that are inferior.

    I'll never be able to wrap my head around that.

    Smoke and mirrors.......and the fact that its a very easy thing to get going , thats why there are so many winders these days. Im not saying anything bad about any pickups o the market , but.....how much difference can there be ?
