    Ron Ellis or gil yaron pickups

    Let me know what you think- I grabbed a set of Yarons, after seeing your post that he’s selling them off his website. Will compare notes. Also- Did you ever get the guitar with the Flametones from your tech? I’m curious about your take on ‘em

    Is it Worth It Upgrading From Custombuckers to Boutique PAF's? (Video)

    This relates to something I noticed when I handed my LP to one of my best friends, who’s predominantly a Strat guy. He immediately turned all the knobs to 10 and slapped on an overdrive pedal, and remarked, “this sounds like $hit.” To which I laughingly retorted “no, YOU sound like $hit”...

    Ron Ellis or gil yaron pickups

    Wow, you seem to excel at tangentially-related yet confrontational questions. Funny thing about dropping lots of cash on stuff that you have to wait for- you have ambivalence about it. Lots of it. And you sometimes ask yourself - is this really worth it? Not the product, but the product...

    Anyone heard from Onamac/Kerry Learned recently?

    What is this “Calling...the phone number?” Some sort of ancient technology? I’m just kidding. No, I haven’t, that’s my next step, I just hate bothering people with phone calls unless I have to. Which, all things told, may be the right thing to do now.

    Anyone heard from Onamac/Kerry Learned recently?

    I want to give him the benefit of the doubt first- people on reverb last month were writing positive things about their interactions with him, so it’s not clear he’s being evasive

    Anyone heard from Onamac/Kerry Learned recently?

    Hi all, About 3 weeks ago, I put in an order for some PAF-style pickups from Onamac WIndery, and have heard nothing from them, despite 2 Emails asking for a rough estimate when they might be ready. Has anyone heard from Onamac/Kerry recently, or experienced this? He may be on vacation or...

    Yngwie Bashes Ibanez Guitars

    His argument about being a “purist” his pretty funny, considering how many effects he uses for his sound. What exactly is he considering “pure?” Even his amp- I’ve heard Marshalls called many things, but “pure” isn’t one of them. The guy’s certainly got a ton of opinions, but if every opinion...

    Ron Ellis or gil yaron pickups

    Correction: seems as though, through some unintelligible leaps of logic, you somehow think he answered YOUR question, not his. I’m sure there’s some spotless divination buried somewhere deep in there, but no one knows what you’re actually getting at. But I’m sure an ageist argument will...

    How long did it take you to get your ron Ellis pickups?

    Bashing is your word, not Mr.BassmannLesPaulMan’s. I think the sentiment is that Mr. BLPM genuinely wants Mr. Ellis’s pickups. Though many makers (yourself included) make top notch products, pickups aren’t intercheangle- builders have their own signature sounds, and it sounds like Mr. BLPM is...

    How long did it take you to get your ron Ellis pickups?

    No disrespect, Mr. Specific, but I think the sentiment isn’t so much disliking Mr. Ellis or his products, but rather a sense of bafflement about how some one-person winding businesses can fulfill handmade orders quickly, and others cannot.

    How long did it take you to get your ron Ellis pickups?

    For another set of ‘58 and/or 59 Holy Grail LTDs, I’d do it!

    I do, actually. Check out: 1) 2010-2011 Bacchus Classic Series LPs 2) Cool Z or History (store brands at Shimamura) 3) modern Tokai’s (vintage ones too, but they can get pricey!) 4) Edwards E-LPs (you can a nice 130 or 135 with all lacquer tops for under $1k, if you look for used ones). Hope...

    They can be. The one I had played great, but there was something about the photoflame that I just couldn’t get over

    I recently sold one exactly like that for around $700, including shipping.

    Never Mind Got It

    Ah, the old ice pick. Is that the problem with the Custombuckers? Also- do you use ‘50s wiring? Are you someone who plays with tone and volume constantly at 10? I ask only because it’ll help guide my recommendations for what to look for in a pickup. All the manufacturers you listed are...

    Never Mind Got It

    Oh boy- you’re gonna get zillions of different recommendations. Perhaps it’s worth asking- what tones are you missing? What flavor of PAF are you seeking?

    PAF-style pickup demo vids

    Thanks for the kind words. And yes- the Doug and Pat show is excellent. I too am an old school “edge of breakup” guy- I prefer playing straight in, and getting it to a point where I can go from clean-ish to crunchy with a turn of a tone and/or volume knob, rather than using pedals. To me...
