This is my 2008 R9 VOS, love everything about this guitar but just had a deep desire to get some double creams in there and to try some new tone, in the past this has only ever been ventured with amps and a random pedal occasionally. I looked online at everything in my budget and decided to go for these PAF's by Matt at Monty's Pickups London. I couldn't find a lot on them but what I could find was very positive. I was so excited to get these and the whole experience of receiving them was great, really stylish and a real sense of these are MY pickups made for ME. I installed them myself and I did my best to replicate the stock wiring positions but felt that I needed to leave a little more length on the conductor wire just in case. I have a beaten up old epiphone that I have used for practise and when my skills improve I'll redo the soldering on the parts I removed. Overall though I am really pleased with the tone and look. I was going to pay someone to do this for me but in the end I just went for it and made sure I was very careful. Any tips or tricks for future soldering would be greatly appreciated. Bit of a long post this one but I know some of you out there love pictures and enjoy seeing the insides of these beauties. Got these photos whilst removing the stock pick ups. Original wiring: My wiring: The original braided wire cloth seemed to be waxed maybe? I couldn't replicate the smooth tight look of it and my braided wire clipping skills are slightly lacking. I tinned the conductor to ensure a good connection also. The extra length was just in case I made a mistake and had to try again.
