So.... I foolishly sold the pickups in both of my guitars back in October. Don't ask. Anyways, I was on the hunt to replace them and Ian Anderson got in touch with me and offered to make a set for me. I have been wanting to try his pickups for a few years now so I went for it. Fast forward about a month and no pickups. By now I'm jonesing to play one of my guitars. A good close friend sent me a older set of alnico II Duncan's so I threw them in my wraptail so I would have something to play. Fast forward another month and still no pickups from Ian. Mind you, we are in communication with each other any time I need via Facebook messenger. He's waiting on magnets now. Ok. Fast forward to about a week or so before Christmas and I am pretty much giving up on the IA's and looking for another set of pickups. I end up getting a set of Rewind low winds. I had a set of medium winds in my wraptail to begin with and those pups sounded incredible. Like they were made for my guitar. Anyways, I put them in my R7 and they sound awesome! Sweet! Within the next few days, I do a trade for another cool set... Burstbucker 3 set from a collector's choice Carmelita. I go for my wraptail to swap out the Duncan's for the Burstbuckers and notice a crack going from the treble side tailpiece stud to the humbucker cavity. Shit!!! Talk to my tech, he says no problem fixing that at all. After some thought, I decide to sell it to my very good friend Bob, who is Caretaker here on the forums. The day before Christmas, on a Sunday afternoon no less, the Ian Anderson pickups show up! Shit! I quickly put them in the R7 hoping, kinda in a way, that they suck so I can recoup some cash. Nope... they don't suck. They are really good. They remind me of the Ron Ellis set I had in my LRP R7. Woody, single coil like, etc. Just a really fantastic set. I now have one guitar, my R7, and two extra sets of awesome pickups. I guess I will need another guitar or two. I don't want to sell any of them and end up in the same boat again. I did find another Oxblood and put that bad boy on hold last night, so that takes care of one set lol. I do have to say, all three sets are killer and eventually I will find a new home for them. Huge thanks goes out to my buddy John for helping me with the Rewind transaction and of course James! James can wind one spectacular pickup! A huge shout out to Ian as well for coming thru when I was starting to think it was a wash. Ian, your pickups are the bomb my friend! Ok that's all lol.
