below is my original response to jonesy - good luck in whatever your decision is :~)
"new sheptones locked and loaded.
holy les paul!
have not even tweaked the amp and they hit the ground screamin'
the middle position and the neck pup are alive
the bridge pup is a user friendly monster?
going to have to learn about ALL amp and LP controls again because it is like i have a new rig...
i figured they would be good, but i did not think i would be this impressed
will get the "sweet spots" mapped out and try to post some audio and/or a/v as soon as i can
i am surprised you did not hear me in Indiana because i am only a couple of states away!
not just the punch of the pups, but most importantly the tone
even though they are called "custom jimmy page pafs" – i am glad they do not exactly sound like his live zep tone
(in a good way as in imitation) nor do these pups have me playing as well as page in his prime
