Love it! It reminds me a bit of the soundtrack to The Adventures Of Pete & Pete played by Polaris, in style I mean. That is a very good thing in my opinion!!!

I find it hard to notice any difference between these samples... even between the japanese "strat" ones and say antiquity 1s where the difference should be clear... and i'm listening with Senheiser hd600 headphones! This is weird as in youtube videos the difference between pickups is noticiable :unsure:

Anyone have experience with both Fralin & Novak pickups? Have Fralin's +5% pickups in my JM at the moment. Wondering if I might like the Novak JM-V/FAT combination more. I like the Fralins but find the bridge unit a bit harsh with overdrive.

I've just orderd a set of Creamery pickups for my 2019 MIJ Jazzmaster.

After a very nice conversation with Jamie about my needs and wishes, I pulled the trigging on a set consisting of:
- slightly overwound '58 with Alnico 4 (neck)
- Alt-88 Mid-Range with Alnico 4 (bridge).

I'll let you know my impressions as soon the pickups are here and installed in the guitar (but be very patient since timescale is still up at around 40-45 days as each pickup is custom made and Jamie works through orders one-by-one) :freako:

That's exactly what I'm using on my Vintera JM. Love em, but admit I haven't compared them other custom PUPs.
