I've got Surf 90s in my 5120 and love them. Everything from surf to punk rock they work great.
Here's a link to some sound clips I did with mine. They are a touch brighter in person, but you get the idea. I'm really happy with them, and any other GFS pickups I've heard.
Welcome to the forum!
I am not personally familiar with the Surf 90's, cassidy, but I am familiar with TV Jones' after-market pickups and they are fantastic. Unfortunately, they cost a bit more than the GFS pups, most likely, but they are worth every penny.
TV Jones is a GDP sponsor and one heckuva nice guy. Here is a link to his website.
And, welcome to the GDP!
thanks..i think Im gonna go with the 90s..after reading through some other posts,they seem to be a good choice.. do you know will the 90s they have featured on gfs site fit into my 5120? Ive never done this kind of work before
