DIY tools maybe needed.....
Bradders, 19.04.2019
I bought this for my Strat guitar copy as I wanted a noise free single coil sound.
The product was shipped to the exact specified time I was given by Thomann & was packaged perfectly and safely when I received it.
The instructions for installation are all perfect & I can say that it all works as I expected.
Beware when installing these though if like me you have a far eastern strat copy you may have to get some tools together before installing. my needed the electrics cavity to be sanded down to prevent the hump others have mentioned, also on mine I couldn't fit the battery under the electrics as seen in EMG install video's on American made stratocasters. Why anyone would replace pickups on a $2000 guitar I will never know but anyway.... be prepared I had to drill a hole from my electrics cavity to the back where I had to make a battery compartment so if you dont have a drill/jigsaw etc. you may find this to be an issue.
I have no problems with this on my guitar as it cost me £60 second hand & I bought it knowing some work may need to be done to it.
the pickups sound great in positions 1 3 & 5 but the famous position 2 & 4 are a little lacking in definition, perhaps this is due to the pickups not being a set neck middle bridge like with typical strat pickups.
Overall I am very happy with these I can play from clean to high gain without any problems but more importantly I can now use a strat to record with which doesnt have 60 cycle hum.
