    $200 for the set, OBO, free shipping in US.

    I took these pics about 6 months ago, unfortunately I don't have the boxes anymore, but I have the pickups (currently in my G5420) and mounting screws.

    I've decided to switch to Filtertrons on this guitar. They're lovely sounding pickups. A few light scratches on the playing side from my picking, but otherwise they look great and sound killer.

    Beauties! So tempting at a good price. What to put them in though?

    Oh man this is soooo tempting as I want a pair of these for my 5320T........but I need pick ups for my 6118T which I guess is more of a priority.

    How P90 do these sound?
    Do they fit HB rings?

    If you bring them up high and the pole pieces low, they do generally have a classic P90 type midrange sound - but probably a bit more subtle on the nuances. They kind of have that TV Jones sheen to them if you know what I mean, and use Filtertron magnets and Filtertron pole pieces. They're also sensitive to adjustment. If you lower the pickups and raise the pole pieces you get a more sparkely sound. This is a good indication of the middle position sound:



    If you want to fit them in a HB guitar, TV Jones sells adapter rings. I haven't tried them, but here is a link:

    Update: I was able to sell some other things to fund the Filtertrons. So I would also consider trades or partial trades for:

    Nocturne Dyno or Atomic Brain
