Ever thought about changing the pickups in your guitar but weren’t sure if you were going to love the sound? Or are you just curious about how certain pickups actually sound with your own playing style? Mass Strett Music luthier (and pickup expert) Matt Harmon wanted to give our customers the opportunity to try out some cool Fralin, Grosh, Duncan and other pickups on a regular basis. Every two weeks we’ll have a new set of cool pickups installed in a guitar, readily available for you to try out in our store.
Just look for the ‘Pickup Test Drive’ guitar on the main floor, plug it in and go to town. Two weeks later we’ll have something new for you to check out. The first test drive starts this Friday, Aug. 10 with Fralin Humbuckers (7.5k in the neck and an 8.5k in the bridge (hot!)) installed in Harmon’s own Seuf relic’d Les Paul! The Fralins will be available to try out until Friday, Aug. 24. You can get a preview of the Seuf in this Fralin Humbucker video we shot with Eric Putnam.
