1 BuddyHollywood 2 years ago During Bear's Go Fund Me campaign for his daughter I happened to surf to the Rose Pickups website. I was immediately intrigued by their Mozart pickups which are advertised as humbucker sized Jazzmaster pickups. I contacted owner Ken Currie through email and told him I was interested in finding a P90 style pickup with alnico slug magnets for my original designed Freestyle guitars and thought his Mozart pickups appear to be just what I'm looking for. He responded that after hearing what I wanted he would like to customize the construction for my Mozart pickups to make them taller than his regular Mozarts so they would be less Jazzmaster and more P90 but still with alnico V slugs. We corresponded back and forth a few more times and then I placed the order. I installed them over the weekend and they sound great! The bridge pickup reminds me of a Telecaster pickup mixed with a P90 and the neck pickup sounds like a fat Fender single coil but not quite as "bonky" as a Jazzmaster pickup. It's warmer like a P90 but clear like a good fat Stratocaster pickup. I had him reverse wind the neck pickup so the middle position is hum cancelling when combining the two pickups. I noticed like Gretsch style pickups I had to raise the bridge pickup so the poles are almost touching the strings to get the optimum tone. I then adjusted the neck pickup for balance in the middle position. Rose Pickups are really good sounding pickups and they are a pleasure to deal with. I'm blown away that he customized a set of his pickups for me at no additional charge. It seems the Mozarts at least are wound like vintage pickups and are lower output than most standard modern pickups. Most Gretsch players may prefer this anyway but it's something to be aware of if you're interested. String to string clarity is great with these. Made in the USA is also a good bonus.
