Bette HumbuckerBette set is based on the patent era Humbuckers that were used in the early to late 60’s ES Gibson guitars. These are a bit more fundamental sounding vs the other sets, which can work well in an ES335 style semi-hollow guitar. The Bette’s have a beautiful musical sound and timber on the notes...www.ronellispickups.com
Congrats, amazing guitars and pickups, and I love the way you’ve left the pickguards on them !These are my main Les Paul's; a 2017 Les Paul Custom with 498T & 490R pickups, a 2012 '58 Reissue with early OX4 "Jimmy Page" pickups and a Heritage H150 (their version of a Les Paul Standard) which after having gone through various brands, all reputable top quality stuff, I've finally fitted with a set of OX4 "Beano" pickups.
It all depends on the guitar but I can honestly say that what these pickups complement each guitar to perfection.

I gotta say the factory Super 58 neck and V2 bridge in my dead-stock '82 Ibanez -for me- are better than any of the high-end PAF clones or aftermarket humbuckers I've run in my other guitars. Back in the cover band days they did exactly what I needed for any situation from Classical Gas or Elvis up through Tesla or Van Halen.
Admittedly, they are hotter than traditional PAFs (8.2 neck, 11.2 bridge) but they're still full, articulate, and warm without being mushy, spikey, or harsh.
Tom Holmes H450-H455.
Already have a set in a 59 Burst repro, and another set Ive never used. I am also on his list to get another 2 sets this month. Just waiting for his call. Im going to get them before he quits winding.
No hes not retired yet. Hes been threatening to for a few years. Ive been on this waiting list for 16 months.I've got two sets of Tom Holmes in two Les Paul's. Incredible pickups. I was under the impression, from his wife, he already retired. Interesting.
