MMK 61 Pickups

Post by Meadows on Mon Jan 04, 2016 9:18 pm

Just a very quick one please.

Which models in the range had the MMK61's normally fitted as standard?

What is the general impression of the pickup for those with experience?.....Clean tone please.

Many thanks as always Smile

I think the likes of the Rainbows and Session II had 61s; people with Rainbows like them!!

Thanks Corsair

Pete mine had 75's,

I'm wondering if the 61's were geared more towards semi's/hollow bodies. There is a pair on the bay which came out of an old Mats Epiphone Riviera. Wondered how they would sit and sound in a solid body and although a tad expensive, they are not being made any longer so might be worth picking up.

I only have one guitar with a '61, a Vantage VP710 POST HERE and it's wonderful in this solid body. I don't think you'd regret buying them.

No experience at all with the '75 Crying or Very sad

Thanks Barry, I remember your original VP701 post very well, it inspired a couple of Vantage purchases, both armed with 45's..... I like your thinking Smile
