Wanted to say thanks and give a bit of feedback on the Alchemist 90 pickups. Ive just stuck a pair into my Tele to get more of a clear, single-coil tone (replacing a pair of humbuckers) and the results are great. Both at bedroom levels and full band gig/practice volumes they are sounding spot on, really cutting through with a ringing bell-like tone on the cleans and also some nice bite for overdriven sounds. This is the second set of IronGear pickups Ive had from you (the first being a pair of Blues Engines PAF style humbuckers, which are also great) and its got to the point where I wont bother shopping around anymore when looking for pickups. For a bit of balance, I have some Bare Knuckle PAFs (over 200 for the pair) in another guitar these are really nice pickups but the IronGear stuff more than stacks up against them but for a fraction of the price.

My latest upgrade was the Alchemist 90 pickups, and now installed on my Hagstrom Swede Tremar. I always thought the humbuckers on this guitar were a little dull and lifeless, so I thought I'd give the Alchemists a try to give it some character. WOW what a difference, the guitar sounds great, with much more clarity and definition on both chords and single notes. Clean or dirty the Alchemist 90s sound fantastic. Dave, (Aberdeen)

Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know I've successfully installed the Alchemist 90s with the wiring kit you supplied into my old Strat copy! What a difference a set of pickups make!!! The sound from the Alchemists is just fantastic- great clean, even better dirty!! I've installed the neck the wrong way round to get an out of phase sound when used together, which gives a sound I'd dreamed about! Awesome!!! Thank you for such a quality pickup! The only problem is now I'm going to have to save up to replace the Seymour Duncan Invaders in my SG with a pair of Blues Engines! Again, many thanks Dave, Newark

"Stripped out a Hagstrom Swede and had the bridge Alchemist P90 pick up installed by Chris from a Essex Guitar Services (who not only recommended IronGear but deserves a shout out for his excellent service) for that melody maker feel. The stock pick ups were fine but the Alchemist takes the guitar to another level. Rich, harmonic, responsive it just feels like velvet now but hard ass velvet! The other guitarist in my band has an LP gold top with the P90s. He can keep it. This is amazing, thanks!" - Adam Birtwistle, Rayleigh, Essex
