Kent Armstrong. Found on some older model Jacksons and alot of name brand guitars.
Made his name and fathers name ( Dan ) by hand made p/u's. Check out the P90's!
My old jack Rx use to have th SH13 and SH14 combo. Like a DA, I replaced them with some passive EMG H1's. mad.gif

These things sound simply amazing from the clips! Plus Muris is endorsed by them, so they must be good. laugh.gif

I'm almost 100% sure these will be the pickups I will buy when I make my own/mod a guitar for the first time.

This is for installing Fender Noiseless Pick-ups. I went to put a set in my Strat and found the wiring diagram didn't go with the set. I found you need the digram for the Delux American Strat. There's two capsitors/resisters with the set that are not on the enclosed diagram. The links show you the correct diagram and an actual picture. If you have a question feel free to contact me. I just put them in mine ,not too difficult.

Anderson pickups rock. They are a little expensive, but the sound is hugh and you don't have to worry about a battery.
