Great Pickups

johnny74, 07.05.2017
Cannot fault this set of Humbuckers. Sounds absolutely fantastic. Mid output levels. The EQ balance on these are perfect for a Les Paul or SG while still maintaining that classic Gibson Sound. Only adds to the quality of a Guitar sound.
EMG are great and Thomann are excellent as usual, only one slight problem... These are advertised as Passive with long shaft pots. Not correct, they are active with standard short shaft pots!

FATEUX 55

Jimzepol, 25.09.2017
This beautiful kit is very easy to mount, even childlike. Whether replacing or original is a disconcerting simplicity. The assembly diagram is very complete.Attention anyway to provide a selector, because not supplied.
The sound is very Gibsonian with "fat" as its name indicates. I have a greater preference for the micro neck. I find the Bridge a bit below. He would miss a bit of bass. But that's just my opinion. I have mounted three Fat 55 kit and the reliability of EMG is always at the RDV. Be careful, do not expect to sound like a 85 or an 81, we are here more in the passive definition.
