I have to admit I was secretly dismayed about this. I kinda enjoyed the romance of having something that wasn't made anymore.

I have a '52 telecaster reissue with Bardens in it. I get asked about it after every show. I wish I was a good enough guitarist to justify having these pickups, but I'm not.

The way I'd describe these pickups is "hyper-articulate." You can hear the harmonic interchange between the strings. Every note comes out with full bandwidth clarity and separation. It's freaky.

It forces you to play better, because everyone can hear everything you're doing with your hands. Every gesture is amplified.

For me, this isn't always a GOOD thing...
