What do you get when you combine a Crossroads neck with a DarkBurst bridge? Ans: The best of both worlds - A monster sound for only $260.00
Crossroads neck is Patent-Applied-For ALL THE WAY ! They look the same, but SOUND BETTER, and cost a LOT LESS ! What's more, un-like the originals, these sound great EVERY TIME ! This set of pickups was built to replicate the tone from the song "Crossroads" from Cream's "Wheels of Fire" album. They have been tested extensively in an SG, a Firebird, and a Les Paul. They absolutely NAIL that sound!
Their construction has been in the works for nearly a year at the behest of Michael Lawrence of the Contortions, Mikey, Gong/N.Y. Gong, National Health, World at a Glance, the U.S. "Surfin' with the Alien/Joe Satriani" tour, Rick Derringer. This is the tone that Mick has been chasing since he first heard the "Wheels of Fire" album when learning guitar. He finally found that sound with this superb set of pickups.
DarkBurst bridge These pickups were wound to the specs of Duane's "DarkBurst" (hence the name), his last axe. They are a slightly over-wound version of the Crossroads Set, and tonaly have a sound like Duane from "Eat a Peach", Free, Bloomfield's "Super Sessions," EVH's brown-sound, etc.
Priced the same as Fillmores or Crossroads, they are in a class all by themselves.
Reviews all over the net resound.
We have a good many customers tell us they have yet to find out what these pickups CAN'T do !
