"Mick, I have this Explorer. Basically a '58 sort of thing. It has loud pickups in it and I want them gone. Wouldn't mind some period-attentive PAF-type pickups. Can you do, please?"
And he did. Wow. A2 beauties that are full of personality and life. And I know that they'll grow up over time too. Stunners, Mick Brierley. Thank you.
We talked about names. In the end we decided to call them 491's after the last three digits of Seth Lover's patent. So, here's a little take on Mick Brierley's bloody excellent 491's. If you want some, you'll have to call/email Mick as they're not a website product yet.
