What do folks think of these Entwistle pups? My flatmate got one for his strat and really likes it
Entwistle pickups are really good, and in that price bracket pretty unbeatable. I've got a Nemesis and a Nemesis AFG humbucker (the nemesis being ceramic and the AFG being a mix of ceramic and alnico) and they are both really good. I've spent a lot of money on pickups over the years (most of my guitars are fitted out with Bare Knuckles) and the Entwistles are very good. Certainly prefer them to the Duncans I have had.
They're rebadged Artecs, or at the very least commissioned from them, so in-line with the majority of GFS pickups. In other words, depending what you're looking for, they're really quite nice for the relatively small outlay.
All Burns pickups are now Entwistle designs. Additionally, I had an Alden guitar with three of these exact pickups and it's one of the nicest sounding (but possibly worst-looking) guitars I've ever had, which influenced this purchase. I'm eager to pick up an HV57 or whatever it's called, their version of the PAF, and pair it up with one of their more aggressive ceramic pickups on my Nu-Sonic and see what it sounds like. _________________
