Wicked Pickup Replacement.

Post by umpdv5000 on Tue Feb 15, 2011 6:35 pm

I just thought I would give you a blimp at this Epiphone whatever that I have just replaced the pickups in. It was a typical Super Strat with a Humbucker and Two overwound single coils. The pickups that I have put in are a Warman Domiinator in the Bridge position and two Warman Twin Rail Loco's in the Middle and Neck position. Each pickup is coil tapped which is useful, as it makes it sound more like a regular guitar, but when the coil taps are off... Geez! It's like its Rocket Propelled!

It is interesting, but only in so much that it was done just to be interesting. That is to say, that this row of power pickups (which are a well balanced mix), were installed just to see what the outcome would be. And it is fair to say that they certainly kick ass, but I with today's amplifiers there is no real need for pickups this powerful, as the gain controls on most amps can usually compensate for the strength or weakness of any production pickup. It's a great toy though. :bball:

It's probably best to log on to www.ebay.co.uk and go into the musical instrument category and type in a search for Warman

Alternately you can use this ebay link to one of the pickups that I bought from Warman and then go to his ebay shop from the listing where you will find the range of pickups he has on offer. It's worth doing as these are mega bargain prices for what you get.

His official website is www.warmanguitars.co.uk but its a good idea to check out his ebay prices first. affraid
