I bought a couple of these for a cheap beater guitar I got that I wanted to experiment on.
I can't testify to their authenticity as I haven't played any original Goldfoils, but they sound very clear and jangly to me, a little like Strat pickups.

Anecdotally, and this is based purely on experience of GFS lipsticks and their mini humbuckers (their Strat pickups sound fine to me). I you want to know what a goldfoil actually sounds like then get a LOLlar or some other well-known maker. Cos I can't believe any of the baloney on the GFS site. _________________
The Creamery have started making gold foil pickups according to their Instagram page. They look amazing and based on their other pickups should sound great and not be too expensive. _________________ www.gabrielwareing.com
I was actually scoping those out, kinda spendy for the guitar I'm putting it in. How was it in the bridge position?
Aye, although I got some smaller wire on the cover rather than the larger honeycomb. The bridge was a bit bright for my liking but I very rarely use any bridge pickup I'm all about the neck tonez. Mark the guy who makes them is very helpful and pretty much makes them to the spec you ask for.
