    btw - there's no need to cut the shield or the inner cloth to expose the hot lead. You can just push it back. It's not like stripping a modern PVC jacketed wire. That's why it's sometimes called "pushback wire" around here.

    This James guy. I like him. He's 105% into everything. Wants his customers to be happy.
    Just felt that this needed to be said. Or sumthing.

    Went to my buddies house and installed these bad boys today into my Class 5 Les Paul... I was so anxious!!! Put the new caps in, strung her up, plugged her into a nice tube amp and strummed the first chord ..G major... bridge pick up......WOW!!!!!!! Flipped it to the neck, hit a riff, WOW!!!!! I have NEVER had a guitar that sounds as sweet as this one!!! TRUE STORY!!!! I feel like I am playing a real 59 burst or something... it sounds like old Billy Gibbons tone...NO JOKE!!! The best way to describe the bridge pickup is "Juicy" soooooooooo nice and sweet sounding, the neck is so thick and warm, woody sounding, like my 73 T-Top but with more creaminess... AMAZING, Best upgrade I have ever done.. James YOU Rock, and so do your pickups! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE!!!! Thanks to Mobprop for getting the idea in my head..SOOOOOOOOOOO Glad I did! Not sure what my wind was, but Holy Smokes PERFECT!!!!!!!!! I ordered the Low Output set but asked James to make it in-between low and medium output....PERFECT!!!!
    It's like my guitar came to life.....

    Awesome! I was wondering how you've been. Been meaning to reach out myself.

    Give me a buzz whenever you can, I'm in a more relaxed situation than I was last time we talked.

    I don't have Skype. Maybe I should? Is it free?

    I've got FaceTime on my phone/mac and Gchat through google. I can call you too, and cover the charge. Whatever works.

    It's either buried in this thread or another, but Kevin (Mob) posted one of these somewhere.

    Edit: Found it.

    I was wondering how these turned out as well. I must say they sound fantastic in Mobs hands and guitar and even better with some good headphones! Cool stuff! :applause:
