  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I'm kitting out an old Peavey for a cousin of mine, and decided to put a SC-sized humbucker in the bridge. I ordered one from GFS, and now am trying to install it. However, they use a quick-connect deal on all their pickups so I'm not really sure what goes with what. Has anyone ever wired up...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ordered some GFS Lil Puncher XL pickups for my Squier Tele. They're a blade type humbucker. The cool thing about them is the Kwikplug connectors. I ordered a coil tapped wiring harness from GFS for about $20. It's basically plug and play. Took less then an hour to swap both pickups. The pickups...

    Anyone using GFS? I have a PowerRails bridge pickup (output around 16.5k) and a Lil' Killer (output 10k) in the neck....both passive. I was skeptical at first because of the price $35 each....but I installed them and WOW!! They are killer...been playing them for about 6 years now. GFS Power...

    Their humbuckers are apparently not the same pinouts as the Blackouts and EMG 81/85. Is there a quick fix for this without having to re-run and re-solder cabling, or am I hosed? I made the mistake of seeing the 3-pin connector on the back of the GFS and assuming that it was as simple as an...

    I am looking to upgrade the bridge pickup in my Jackson DK2S Sustainiac. I am an EMG junkie, but it would be a bear to upgrade the guitar to active electronics. I really don't want to spend $100 on a pickup. I've heard some good things about the GFS Crunchy Rails bridge pickup, but I am not...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ill start by saying that they are quite different. They are very articulate, and have a good amount of gain. They don't have the sustain of an EMG, but they do sound good. They have a lot more midrange than other active pickups, and they clean up amazingly.

    I'm just wondering what everyones opinion in these is, if any. I've been looking at them all day and they seem like a good deal so is love to hear your opinion of them. Humbucker Sized Guitar Pickups
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm looking at pickups for all of my guitars, now typically I am a Duncan guy, but I am interested in what the general consensus for GFS pickups are. Why are they so cheap? Because there isn't a middle man? Or are they cheap import junk? The models i'm most interested in are the "Brown Sound"...
