  • Another BG appreciation thread

    I just installed a set of Pure 90s in my Ibby AM73. These things have a whole lot of snarl in them. There are many great tones that these are capable of. Bryan winds good stuff. We don't see enough of him around here anymore.

      Yeah, his presence has definitely dropped off lately but his pickups are still awesome. The Strat 90s in my Benford Strat sound absolutely fantastic.

        Bryan makes some awesome pickups! I have 4 guitars equipped with his pickups and a T90 awaiting a new home.

          Congrats. He makes a hell of a pickup. Enjoy yours.

          I have a set of H90s. They nail Clapton's tone on the Mayall album; searing, smooth, powerful and dynamic. Pile on the gain and they never seem to lose string definition too. They also do lush cleans really well. All in all I'd have to say they are my most versatile set up of pups.

                  Haters? Of Bryan? That'd be news to me... he is a seriously good dude, and it is too bad he's not around so much. I like to think it's because he's so busy filling orders.

                    no, haters of anyone reccomending anything other than super expensive boutique or mainstream pickups. i've been flamed numerous times for my reccomendations of both of our resident winders...

                      Wow! I have never seen such a thing (yeah I haven't been on THAT much). There's so many good choices and the stuff is so subjective that I am surprised anyone would poo poo a BG Pups recommendation based on quality, or price. The bottom line is there are more fans than foe by a country mile.

                        it's not because of the brands, it's because they say i plug them too much... it's all good though, i know that they make excellent products...

                            agreed, great pickups.
                            I'd recommend either of the 2 winder's here before recommending anything else really.

                              Unless looking for a Filtertron for that it's still TV Jones or possibly Lollar for me.
