Really beautiful guitars! Great thread, glad it got bumped.

Are they still made with pickups by Mike Turk? They have a very good reputation, but we don't see them around much anymore.

Thanks Quill:)
I actually don't know if Tom will use the Mike Turks in the future, I think this was a one off but I'm not sure. But they do sound nothing but spectacular on this guitar. I've tried to search for some information regarding MT but I haven't been able to find that much, but from my experience they are fantastic, if you ever get the chance of grabbing a pair you must give them a try.

I think Tom is going with Sheptones? I think that's what he told me, could be wrong though :)

What I know about Mike Turk, besides the fact that he makes or did make great pickups, is that he's Canadian - from the East somewhere - and that's about it. I did find a place called Blue Hugh music that appears to be selling a set of "killer '59s" by Mike. And for a while, but not currently, Mark at Mark's Guitar Loft was using Mike's pickups in some of the guitars he was having re-done for sale through his shop.

Mr. Turk seems to have become something of a ghost, sad as it is to say. Hope he's well.

Mike Turk pickups are back: Mike Turk Limited Edition Blue Hugh Music Killer '59 PAF Pickups Free Shipping | eBay

I have no affiliation with the seller or the pickup maker. I was researching the pickups and found them on TGP and Ebay.


RAG7890 no NGD yet???

Hi Bodark, nope. The Retro is still sitting at Tom's place being played by a number of way better guitarists than I.............which is cool with me as it gives Tom a chance to show of his wares & skill. :)

:shock:...............& Tom is bonding with it. :)

Planning to get it here in March & yes I am now getting itchy feet. :D

:cheers:

Okay, Rudi, time's up - it's late March, still no NGD?

Hey Jess, hope all is well.

Just a heads up, I expect to have it here some time in the next 2 -3 weeks.

Tom tells me everyone who plays it, loves it. I am really looking forward to trying her out.

Then I'll follow up with a NGD with loads of pics & information from start to finish. :D

Cheers, Rudi
