I think GFS has some very affordable and cool sounding filters....
Pickup bevels finally arrived so its all finished the gotoh Bridge also made a big difference to the intonation and it seems to play much better now
It's getting them in the UK mate, GFS do some great stuff but shipping and tax to the UK makes it pretty expensive. The ones I have probably came from the same factory
UK Filtertrons, I've just ordered a set of these which are a decent price https://www.fletcherpickups.co.uk/filtertrons I will only have my G2420 Broadtrons to compare to so we'll see.
I looked at them mate but i had already got the Allpart ones. you will have to let me know what they are like
It's looking really good, keep going!
this thread has really whetted my appetite for a 5120 project, in fact just had a look on evil bay and am tempted but must wait a little longer but will deffo get one in a while as am currently clearing a space in back yard to build man cave/guitar workshop and need cash for that project.
Will do, I'm on about a four week waiting list though...
Feel the same with Mojo pickups in the uk, really want a set of these: https://www.mojopickups.co.uk/product/foiltron-filtertron-sized-gold-foil/
The price of those Fletcher pickups is about the same as Gretsch HS filtertrons.
Haha! I repair guitars for a living so I have a work shop in town that is also my little man cave! Guitars, football and a mini studio.. "yeah sorry love I've got a load booked in so I'm staying back late.."
Yep I'd looked into a lot of options and nearly bought the HS Filtertrons and very nearly a set of blacktops for £59 for a pair on UK ebay but I thought I'd try something different and support a small UK business in the process.
Welcome to the nut house Britrocker!
The geet is lookin' good sir!
That is a very laudable attitude. How do they compare to the real deal?
That is a nice way to make a living!
I'm on a waiting list so won't have the pickups for a few weeks. My only Gretsch is the G2420 so no direct comparison to be had other than past experience trying out a few other Gretsch's down the guitar shop and youtube!
I just wish it actually paid decent money
