New Gold Foil Day! I received my GFS single coil golds! Well, I installed them Saturday, but I’ve been too busy to play them and post about them. I went with 5k output for both since that’s what the website suggested for the most vintage sound. At first I was regretting it, and thought that maybe I should have gone with something stronger for the bridge pickup. I did some research online and read that the bridge pickup should be as high as 1/8th from the E strings. I raised it up a bit, and VIOLA! Now they balance well, and the bridge sounds much louder and stronger. The “Hot Rail Humbuckers” that I swapped out were undeniably heavier, but these gold foils have a much more articulate and old school sound. This is not my loudest guitar by any means. I played some switcharoo with other guitars keeping my amp and pedal levels the same, and there isn’t too much of a volume drop. Like my tele with TVJ starwoods, this guitar sounds awesome through the custom channel of my Custom Deluxe Reverb.
