Make your axe sing.
The SWV in Rockfield SWV is short for Select Wound Vintage. They're extremely popular. Why? Because they rock! This is where some say it all started and came from. A changing of the guard, if you will, in the future engineering of guitars and guitar pickups. If it wasn't for the original PAF design, who knows where we all would be? With all that being said, this pickup rings true of that vintage tone we speak of with, of course, a Rockfield twist. They went to specific people in the know and found out herds of info about how the originals were made. That, along with Rockfield knowledge made for a great combination. Tonally, it's a blast from the past. A warm, singing and smooth replication of classic PAF style tones that are clear and ring like church bells on Sunday morning.
This neck pickup is perfect in the neck position of any guitar where there is a need to get that sought after warm, thick vintage PAF tone. This versatile neck position pickup takes from its vintage brethren a unique and bold tone that is smooth, warm and balanced from top to bottom. The Rockfield SWV neck position humbucker is sweet and full with great lows, mids and ringing highs.

As an experienced musician I feel safe assuming that these are just imported pickups that some guy put his name on. I have checked out over 30 different makers. Bottom line, these are the worst pickups I have ever owned.
I love these pickups! I played a mockingbird with these in it and i loved these pickups so much i bought a mockingbird with them in it. For the particular sound i was looking for at the time they were perfect and can play any type of music u want really. I would strongly recommend these pickups.
These pickups blow up gibson and ducans for the price! They have fabulous PAF tone without the cost. I have gibson burstbuckers and ducan Alcino 2 Pros and these both sound better and are cheaper! Get them!
It looks like there are a few bad reviews here, but I couldn't be happier with these pickups. I put a pair into a Master Series Squier Telecaster and it is now my favorite guitar to play. It's likely the folks who didn't like these pickups didn't properly install them or they didn't do their homework. I think it's the "metal" guys who are the ones who are disappointed because of the low output. For a clean vintage sound these pickups sing. If you want an edgy distortion sound, these are not for you. Get your distortion at your amp or pedals, not at the pickups.
This is an incredible pickup, both the bridge and the neck are incredible. The bridge pickup is capable of pure unadultered power while maintaining individual tonal characteristics for each note. The neck pickup is smooth as butter and if set up properly rivals the tone of a vintage P-90. The sustain is perfect and rivals any pickup on the market if not beating them: especially in price.
What a nice clean sound, support is just an email away, and they usually answer with in 24 hours. This was my first pickup change out and I wired my bridge pick-up wrong, and emailed them at 3:00 am cdt and by 12 I had an answer.Once you get the pickups tuned you will be amazed as I was. I figured at the price they are going for they would be something like what I pulled out, boy was I wrong, these pick-ups kick a$$.I put these on an Epi SG 400 and normal wiring they can get as dirty as you want them or chime in like a bell. When I had the bridge pick-up out of phase, you can get a real good clean Fender sound.The only reason I gave an overall 9 was because I had to tap the adjustment hole. I wasn't expecting it and added an hour to the job.If your into blues and jazz this is the ticket.
These pickups are the greatest things you can buy. For any price they would be a steal, I personally find they blow dimarzio and even duncans out of the water. Buy now before they go up in price ... godbless you Todd Rockfield and your pickups of incredibleness
These are absolutely NOT muddy. I put a set in and Epi LP and I have also upgraded the hardware and put in paper in oil pots. My guitar sounds better than any other guitar I have ever played. I mostly play cleans and the sound is wonderful. If you can get a great clean sound, you can then run it through whatever pedals or amp you have to dial in "your" sound. This is far and away the best bang for the buck in a pickup upgrade. I also put a SWC neck in a Carvin CT6 and it was just what that axe needed. Great pickups at a great price.
If you like mud then these are the pickups for you! I personally was disappointed but the style I was wanting was true vintage. There are much better choices out there. I think they're just generic overseas built pickups with an American sounding name slapped on them. I know the manufacturer that uses these in their lower end guitars must get 'em really cheap but when I put it in my Epi Sheraton, I took it back out and got an L500 for a few $ more. Now that is the sound I'm looking for!
