So What?!
Zoltan J., 03.08.2018
These pickups are amazing.

Very easy to install them into the guitar, that was the first time when I tried something like this, and it took 1,5 hours.
The plug in parts just so handy and confortable, exspecially with the attached diagram for the wiring.

The sound of the guitar has changed completly. I can feel every single note clearly, and it gives a massive tone and full of body in every level, exspecially in the mid range. Playing rithm or solos, not a bother. I can also use the guitar for another style of music, like blues, rock&roll, heavy metal...ect.

They're in an Llt Ec-50, which is not a great guitar, but since I have these set, I really like it, and I'm just going to buy another set into my another guitar.

I had passive pickups originally, and I was worring about the noise, what everyone saying about the active sets.
I still don't know what the others talking about, 'cause there is no noise at all with the het set.

Thank you Thomann for the very fast delivery, it took only 3 working days to Ireland!

Utterly fantastic
Alycia , 28.05.2015
The bridge pickup has a mid frequency that just punches like Tyson on a driven amp. Clean it sounds almost Strat like with a load more output. Really defined, really clear. It won't forgive sloppy playing either.
The neck pickup sounds very fat, nearly muddy. But with a good bit of middle dialled in and the bass lowered, it makes for a really nice lead sound. Not over enamoured with it on the clean sound of my amp though.
Delivery was really quick. Ordered on Friday, bank holiday weekend, got here Wednesday morning. So in effect, 2/3 working days.
Top class service. Great product.

Amazing product!
Lucas B, 10.12.2017
I bought these pick ups to go in to my harley benton TE-40 and man do they have a great sound! I am completely in love with them.
The solderless system makes it very easy to install these pick ups. You get everything you need ( I decided to order a solderless toggle switch as well so I wouldn't need any soldering). There's also a wiring diagram included which is very clear and simple. It's a step by step guide to tone heaven :D

I really can not say a single bad thing about these pick ups: They're well made, easy to install, sound phenomenal and well they look great too!

I also want to mention the insanely quick delivery I experienced. Normally when I order from thomann it takes around 3-4 days to get from Germany to Belgium after the package left the warehouse. But in this case, I ordered on thursday morning and received them friday at 1 pm!

Thanks Thomann!

A really good option!
Oskar S., 19.01.2014
Hi have this set in my Gibson Explorer.
Before I bought this set I had the normal EMG 81 and EMG 60 setup.
The JH pickups are much more fun to use!
They deliver a sound with alot of punch and much more "middle" in it.
And when you swith to the neck pickup on the clean parts you get a warm and deep tone that really make your day!

After testing them for a day or two you really notice that this set isn´t something the just found in a box and put James name on the sale better.
They have really made a great pickup with the help of James input.

I love them!
