    Absolutely LOVE the pickups! We purchased the 59 overwound loaded pickguard and the American Metal loaded pickguard and are blown away! The 59s sound so full with plenty of kick. The American Metal will rip your face off but can also clean right up. These are some of the nicest single coils I have ever heard. We like them so much that planet tone pickups will be in all of our production guitars. They are that good. Jose and Company really knows their stuff and the prices can’t be beat. Top quality stuff with very personal service. Thanks so much Jose from everybody at Giles USA guitars. Anthony Palumbo, head builder Giles USA.
