I love her...

For my 1977 Greco Les Paul, I was looking for pickups that convert the sustained and full-color dry clay into electrical energy. So far, Seymour Duncan's 'Phat Cat' pickups were mounted, which I really liked very much. I am Mark Knopfler fan and of course I also wanted a sound like in 'Brothers in Arms'. I hoped there was something like the Kloppmann humbucker, but they were too expensive for me. Soon I became aware of the Seymour Duncan 'Seth Lover' models and ordered a set after reading some reviews. The PUs come complete with 2 screws and springs, with low or higher mounting frame (black) incl. 4 short or longer fastening screws. Soon I had the conversion of 'Phat Cat' to 'Seth Lover' accomplished. What am I supposed to say? The SD 'Seth Lover' offers unbelievable dynamics. As the attack intensity increases, the sound bounces up and down from the amp, which is just a joy. All frequency bands in the guitar sound are reproduced very well, the switching between the pickups changes as expected the sound coloring, but never annoying a quirky bridge or muffing Neck-tone, which particularly after the switch over more disturbs more than after a long playing in a certain Position. I am convinced that the thirty-five-year-old guitar has finally found its voice. I play over an H & K Tubeman or alternatively via an H & K Crunch Master with the ROLAND Cube 80 XL Clean channel as power amplification. Not only the Knopfler Les Paul Sounds are realizable, but also harder gaits. It should not be exaggerated: with high-gain settings the non-waxed PUs soon start with the feedback. But for something there is better suited pickup.
But all those looking for the vintage sound I can only call: My search is finished! The instrument must of course provide a correspondingly high-quality sound development.
