A special thanks to Red Circle Guitars for sponsoring this giveaway. Thanks to Jay too, he really showed the range of these pickups.

We truly appreciate the support of every customer, pro musician, luthier & dealer that are so kind to help spread the word about our work.

Red Circle really goes the extra mile for its customers. They always order well in advance in an effort to keep a bit of a supply. Basically they shell out their money & wait so customers don't have to.

Direct Orders are about 2-3 months out but Red Circle has a few sets remaining. Check them out at www.RedCircleGuitars.com

“It sounds like the have Tubes in them...almost three dimensional. They just sound really sweet. I don’t how they do it but they even feel sweet. Just like vintage pickups but with more sustain and less noise. They are just amazing”

I'd put them in my '95 Black Label Strat I got new when I was 12 and have been playing ever since.

How are the frets doing on that 95? Nothing sounds better than a guitar you've been playing for a quarter century. We'd be honored if our pickup found a home in such a special instrument.

2 Strats, 2 Teles!

Thats a good selection. Just out of curiosity, do you set them up pretty much they same? Or are the vastly different instruments with different radius, wood, sting gauge, action, tuning, etc...

We've come across some people that pretty much dial them all in the same and other guys that will have vintage style Strat & a modern Strat and they'll optimize them accordingly.

Here is some info about Upgrading Strat Pickups.

Well, the two Strats are near the same, both have Hot pickups and the EC mid boost in them. One problem Ihave is why doDO I make them the same? I should just keep one if that's the situation! :lol:
The Tele's are different beasts... one is hollow arched top with P90's.

Perhaps if you win, you can make one of those Strats a little different with our 59 Blues Set. It's not overly hot & would work with or without the EC boost. Good Luck.

One of these days, we'll do a giveaway for our 1946 Deluxe P90 set so keep any eye out for new forum posts from us in the future. Here's a video of Doug Rapport just showing the range of our bridge P90.

Thanks for the opportunity to win such great sounding pickups! I recently lost a friend who had an all original '54 Strat back in the '90s. I'd put this set in a lightly relic'd sunburst body and make it a tribute to him.

I enjoyed your demos. I appreciate your decision, to engage quality musicians, to show off your work;-)

I have a left-handed, plywood, dumpster Strat, which i'm renovating and intend to use, upside-down, for slide only. I'm trying to decide which type of pickups would work best- probably the twangy ones, for the kind of early 50s stuff I like. Or maybe the junky ones, that folks throw away, would best summon up that shoestring era? :D
