Hidden: 







Not quite. The pickups are designed and made by Alan Entwistle, who also makes the Burns pickups (from conversations with him I suspect he's a bit more involved in Burns now, possibly making design suggestions and the like). The actual Revelation guitars are made in the same factory as Alden/Hutchins models as far as I know.

I thought they had connections with Alden, all the evidence is there when you pick both brands up, but he said Burns. Dunno Eric.
Alden actually feel better though imo. The full hollow body I tried with the Toaster pups was one of those guitars I wanted to instantly buy there and then.


Entwistle Pups seem to be a selling point as there are tags on these stating what they are. I was quite impressed with the Entwistle models in the Tanglewood Les Pauls a few years back, they dont look anything special and have daft names but always seem to have a great tonal range.


Like I say, he's involved with Burns on the pickup front, but "Alden" guitars are basically Alan Entwistles range, so he has some sort of contract with them to manufacture his guitars, and probably his pickups too. Revelation is his latest brand and I can't imagine him contracting out another factory to make them if he already has Alden on the books. It just seems unlikely.

His pickups are fucking immense. By far the best (and cheapest) shit I've ever tried. I bought a three pickup toaster hollowbody Alden a while back and even though it had issues with the frets, the pickups sounded better than nearly anything else I've ever played, hands down. I found out (from Alan) that they were called the Nashville and Entwistle sold a version. So I bought one and stuck it in my Epi Royale. It's just as good.

The guitars are standard cheap Chinese fare (which I guess nowadays means: really not that bad at all if set up well). No question of that. But the pickups make them something else.

Because of the weak Euro you can buy the Graham Coxon sig Tele for about 500 from THOMANN.

I dunno if you've tried them but it's a great guitar.

.. to put an angled Tele pickup in any 'bucker-loaded geetar, probably using my Jetking as a guinea pig to see how close a TOM-bridge with the right pickup config can get.

I'm excited to see/hear what you think.

I know you're not in the market for another Tele, but that model fir that price. It would have been wrong not to post it.

Right you are, sir; Strat pickup into blank JM pickup cover cut for normal single, angled.

Totally worked, but extra height of the pickup required shimming the neck and it never played as nice with it in.

^ I keep meaning to say Dooglas: you'd LOVE a (proper) Firebird pickup.

Kinda nifty, but it's still just a Les Paul wearing a fake moustache, yknow?

Cannot tell if that was a deliberate troll in the "Jazzmasters have P90s" vein, but Firebird pickups aren't the same as mini-humbuckers. You fucking n00b.
