from Auburn, WA United States
I recently purchased one of David's loaded pick-guards with the quick-connect feature. The installation was a breeze with that and I managed to get the guitar fully shielded--install the pick-guard--set the guitar up for intonation on 11's--all in a little over an hour. Now let's talk about the tone. I firmly believe that David Allen has a sixth sense when it comes to winding pickups. This loaded pickguard is just amazing. The tone is balanced, warm, and clear---and the 2 and 4 quack positions sound like you'd want them to---even with the humbucker, which splits really nicely. The guitar I put it in was a barely used Mexi-strat I picked up at a pawn shop for cheap. Adding this pickguard just made it sound even better than the HSS American strat I used to own. Really incredible! Like I mentioned earlier, David has a special gift when it comes to tone and winding pickups. If you are looking for a quick upgrade for a HSS strat---look no further! Austin Blues HSS set Thanks again David! The AustinBlues HSS set
