I know they are typically low powered winds, but are they extra glassy?
do I need to bump this?
What do you want to know. SRV put them in one of his strats.30 minutes in:
I have one of these guitars. I believe they are Duncan Designed pickups. I love the sound. It's very vintage Strat sounding. The video sounds pretty close to what I experience.
I personally don't like them. Thin and cheap sounding. I'm sure they are totally different than the original ones from the 60s, which were made cheap anyway. With enough pedals and/or effects I'm sure they sound decent.
They had 43 or 44 gauge wire wrapped directly on a ceramic magnet. They were dipped in epoxy potting, then loaded in lipstick tubes. So they tended to be thin and brittle, as @mozz stated. Quality control of the originals were pretty loose and there were good ones and bad ones. I am not sure of new stock, as I haven run across any .
I had a Danelectro Mod 6 reissue with lipsticks....some of the best pickups ever !
They do make your lips look killer on stage!
Got 'em in a Dano RI from the 90's. I've said it before, the middle/series position is cool as all hell. I like the them in that guitar. I'm sure the series position helps.
I hear ya!
I have the exact same model/color.
I have an older telecopy from Indiana Guitar Co. with lipstick pickups. They are not overly glassy. They sound clear and distinct to my ears.
Yes. It’s called Copper but is really more of a Salmon color. Don’t think I’ve come across someone that had that color. Actually, don’t think I’ve ever seen another one. I also had the Yellow DC and I sold it about five years ago. Big mistake. I like Dano’s.
I own both a Squier Surf and a Dano U2. I think the lipsticks sound awesome! Especially the Danelectro, it sounds fantastic. Great cleans, and it really howls with some tube overdrive.
