another thread day! guys, my brother needs some cheap pickups for a project guitar. he's modding a jackson copy alder bodied guitar with a vintage trem. he's looked into guitar fetish and found the GFS pickups to cheap. so how good are those? anyone ever tried them? he's looking at the Fat Pat or Crunchy Pat.

i have heard nothing but outstanding things. my new set of vintage split humbuckers came in last night. i havent had a chance to wire them up yet, but i got to take them out of the box and oogle them for a sec before my gf started to get mad at me. dropping them into a squier jagmaster to see how they measure up, and if they are as good as people say, they are going in my gibson SG.

I have a Fat Pat in the bridge of my LP. I heartedly recommend it to anyone wishing to play anything from classic rock to hair metal! Extremely middy and warm!

I just got a Crunchy Pat for the bridge and a Lipstick Tube for the neck of a fat strat. I'll let you know how I think they sound when I wire it up.

Dude the fat paf pickups are FTMFW (for the motha fkin win lol). for 68 bucks you can get both neck and bridge pickups. They also coil tap decently and the volume drop isn't horrible. My friend has em on his agile 2000 and they get awesome distortion tones and the cleans aren't bad either.

Fat PAT is a damn good pickup, in both positions. I haven't tried the Crunchy PAT, but I have hear it's pretty good for neck. Maybe you could buy both and solder up a hybrid? (;
#15
I love them. They are comparable to much more expensive pups in my opinion... I actually prefer mine to several Seymour Duncan pickups I've tried. Definitely the best bang for your buck.

crunchy pat if you like the dimarzio super distortion. if he likes 80's metal bands like racer x, he'll like these pickups.

I have heard mixed reviews. They REALLY over hype the price difference on their product though and also really hype about their "quality." Some of their pick ups are alright, some aren't. Just remember that all their stuff is imported in from asia so don't expect anything that that you wouldn't expect from a mass production factory. For a change of pickup they are a reasonable off, or if you just need a pickup for a guitar go ahead. I would still take a name brand pup over them if you could afford it.
