    Hi Vikki
    I considered these, as a cheaper alternative to TV Jones' but I couldn't find much in the way of reviews or soundclips.............Kent Armstrong's website isn't as good as it could be!
    I think those pickups are the ones in the Sparrow guitar in the link below, if so they sound fine to me and are good value.......I was ready to buy a set and put some of those replacement covers you can get with the "H" shaped cut out but in the end I found a set of TV classics on Ebay.
    The encouraging thing is you rarely here bad reviews of Kent Armstrong pickups
    hope this helps
    Harry

    Are these also coming from that same Artec plant, where the Duncan Designed import Seymours and Artec lines are also made?

    Unusual design - seems logical but I KNOW NOTHING.

    Does look like the GFS Dream 180, looks as if many of these type of pickups are coming from the same source. Will give one a try in a few months time just for the fun of it:rolleyes:
    Thanks for your thoughts and info...
