THIS SET IS NOW RETIRED. IT WAS A GREAT SET FOR US BUT TIME TO GO.....The 60’s RocknBlues bring back that classic early 1960’s tone with a more powerful bridge for when you want to push the gain up and play dirty. This is our best selling set to date. It has a great deal of flexibility. We started the design inspired by John Mayer's BigDipper's and based around the 61-64 strats which have well developed mids so we pushed the highs and lows. Then we added a little extra complexity by a mix of alnico magnets, special scatter wind and a bridge up to 6.8K. Gray flat work, Hand beveled cast alnico magnets, laser cut hand punched and hand beveled flat work, scatter wound, Special wax potted to reduce microphonics, USA Vintage Cloth Hook Up wire, RWRP middle. Inductance by Henries Neck 2.7, Middle 2.85, Bridge 3.3 Resistance Neck 61, Middle 6.3, Bridge 6.8 "F" shaped bobbins, Magnet spacing Neck, middle and bridge 52mm "F" spaced

The Best Pickups Ever July 16, 2017
Reviewer: Tommy Gerlach from Jackson, WI United States  
I am 17 years old and started playing the guitar at the age of 10 due to seeing John Mayer shred his Monterey Pop Festival live in LA. For 7 months I slowly bought all the parts to build my own Monterey Pop Stratocaster.  I spent months debating what kind of pickups I wanted to put in the guitar. I finally decided to go with David Allen's 60's Rock n Blues pups. this was one of the best decisions with my life... The pickups with vintage pots, .47 cap, vintage bridge and 60's rose wood neck provide a sound that cannot be recreated. After building my guitar I cannot find any other stratocaster, no matter the price, that can beat this tone.  I've had people who have played for 20+ years say they've never heard a strat sound so good! If your debating what kind of pickups to get, please stop and just buy these right now. They will change your life, and anyone who hears your guitar.

Mayer Tone and More! March 28, 2017
Reviewer: Gabe Meyers from Lafayette, LA United States  
I ordered these for a very good friend who is a huge Mayer fan. We installed them in his American Standard Strat, Ash body and Maple Board. I have to say they are some of the best pickups I've heard. The Mayer tones are there in droves! The quality is fantastic. They are very full and fat sounding and have great output, but remain balanced, articulate and responsive. They have a glassy high end, the signature scooped mids and a smooth present bass. They have great clarity that captures all the little nuances in your touch, bends and rakes. The bridge pickup was amazing. It was never harsh or brittle but had power and bite. The 2 and 4 positions have that lovely quack and out-of-phase sound that nails Mayer's sound. My friend and I were blown away and I’m thrilled I ordered these from David. I can highly recommend them if you want that Mayer sound or a twist on the classic 60’s Strat tones.

IMHO these pups NAIL the elusive JM tone May 27, 2016
Reviewer: Harry (JRguitar) from Marshalls creek, PA United States  
I was looking for a set of pickups to get me most of the way to John's tone and was not prepared to spend 500 or more on a set of "big dippers" I took a shot on these after hearing David's 60's RnB's and with some skepticism I ordered and installed them in my CV 60's Squire Strat. I was MORE than presently surprised, I was blown away! These are the real deal for a very sweet price. I have a sound clip I can share so YOU can be the judge! http://chirb.it/wp/ykOOAE

Holy Toledo, Irma! Batten the hatches! May 27, 2016
Reviewer: LeOtis Duvalier from Huntsville, AL United States  
A good friend of mine had been singing the praises of David's pickups & after taking a set of Tru 54s out for a spin I had to admit I liked what I heard. I went to the website, & decided on the JM 60s Rock n Blues set. I installed them in a alder bodied, rw fingerboard Strat I had. I was floored. Meaty tone, great string to string definition, a rich varied tone palette..... and roll back the volume, clean, sparkle-y chime, without any of that pesky nasally thinness. Impressive, very impressive. After running through the positions on my 5 way few times, I found myself returning to the number 2 position. Massive quack, kind of compressed sounding, but still full & lavish. I love these pickups & now believe that my pals had a bit of a flair for understatement. If you're a fan of the 60s Strat sounds, I suggest you give these pickups a try. Your ears will thank you for it. You could spend more money, you're not going to find more (or sweeter) tone.

Excellent pickups for 60's RnB May 27, 2016
Reviewer: Ivars from Latvia / Riga  
I have read many good reviews of D.Allen pickups and ordered a set of JM RnB 60's.
I am blown away by the clarity and bite of my guitar now. This is a perfect set for blues and classical rock stuff. However, I am sure that it it will work perfectly for jazz (and not just that) as well.
Of course, if you like John Mayer sound, this is surely must for you as these pickups have scooped mids for which JM is famous.
All in all, I am more than satisfied with the purchase.
Especially I want to thank David Allen for great communication. Hope to buy another set of his great pickups.
