    Forced myself to record this on my lunch break, enough with postponing it.

    I'll let the video demo do most of the talking, but just let me say this are amazing, 3 notches above the Premium Sets, they have a special clarity and double overtones that just makes you never stop playing.

    Great Job Alex, thank you for letting me have a piece of your art.

    Cheers. :h5:

    They sound great! Thanks! I like how you attacked the strings and showed their dynamics. That was a good demo of how they feel. I would have liked to have heard them without FX, but I still was able to hear enough to be impressed.:thumb:

    ^ Not really 'available', but a possibility.

    You need to email him and see if any more of the wire is usable. There are 11 sets in the wild AFAIK, and he was not sure how many of the spools would hold up to more sets.

    Be prepared to pay $$$$$$$.....these are NOT cheap pickups.

    great demo! but my sets sound a kinda "different". they sound more transparent, big and juicy and have those double harmonics. maybe its the amp/settings or the reverb you re using or maybe it is just that youtube think that changes everything. but man they still sound awesome! :)
    they do sound the best in my ´58 es-335 by the way. it is the best paf tone i ever heard in one of my guitars. i´m totally blowen away. that 335 is doing that les paul thing better than a les paul :D

    is that gt a conversion or an aged r5? it looks like amazing man!!

    This beats every "what to put in my LP" question.
    Just wonderful, specially neck pickup growl

    This was a very limited small run, prices were high but worth every penny, contact Alex @Wizzpickups if he will have another run in the future and its price.

    Thanks.
