New Pickups!! Scored Some Great Used Pickups for Cheap

Thanks to Jon Baxter of Jon Baxter Pickups for the great deal on these used pickups. I got a Seymour Duncan Antiquity, a Duncan Hot Rails and two DiMarzio PAF Pros all for $160! Used Duncan Antiquities can often go for nearly that much alone, so this was an incredible deal for sure.

I am also excited about meeting Jon. He lives a few hours away in Alabama, and it's always nice learn of another boutique pickup maker. Jon is more than happy to create any kind of pickup you can imagine, so I may well have him develop some custom pu's for a few of my more "challenging" guitars... the ones that have certain tonal qualities in the woods that make them difficult to find off-the-shelf pickups that are complimentary. I'll definitely have him pot the Duncan Antiquity since I play fairly loudly and with plenty of gain. I am sure it will be pretty microphonic otherwise. Look for an interview with Jon soon, as well as a complete review of a few of his pickups.
