everything i hoped for

About Me Experienced

Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

i've been playing for almost 40 years. last 35 all acoustic. hadn't played electric since college.

then...

my son goes off to college and i inheret his squire standard strat which he played maybe twice. (also his practice amp whose upgrade is for another forum). its a suprisingly playable axe...the maple neck has excellent uniform grain, the body is HEAVY (agathis i think?) with remarkable sustain. the pickups had a sorta decent strat twang but were noisy and hollow. i researched the SD's and went with the everything axe set including pickguard, switch, jack and pots. there was no soldering needed as there is a screw-down terminal block. the input simply gets connected and you're good to go.

it was tricky getting the pickup height balanced so i took it to the local guru and now its sweet as honey from the bee. the little 59 is fat and soulful, the duckbucker tight and crisp, the JB jr like a buzzsaw. the 2 and 4 positions provide incredible versatility. i find myself lost in any one position/combination for hours. there is so much to discover in these pick ups. glassy cleans with and without reverb sound amazing in any position. when overdriving them they are punchy and complex with lots of overtones.

when i sell this squire i'll DEFINITELY remove the SD's to save for any future projects.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    When the stock pups in my Strat started getting muddy ( were old, 1995 standard MIMs) I knew it was time to replace them. Having a YJM Fury SD set in my other Strat, I went for the Everything Axe set for this one. I need one Strat with classic tones to offset my high output one. The Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Set is the ticket. The sound quality is amazing, clean and driven. The Lil '59 in the neck is clear and present, unlike the stock pups Fender puts in there. The JBJR hits the right mix of bucker and Strat tone that cuts right thru any lead with ease. The Duckbucker was the wildcard for me. Wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I am growing fonder of it with each practice. Bright, clear and with a tone that makes you want to use the middle pup more often. With each distinct pup you get a guitar with capability you never expected. I even coil split the bridge and neck for more options, and they work fine. Definitely worth the money to improve a great guitar.

    Make your strat mean!

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    My setup is American Std Strat with Everything Axe Set pickups into a WayHuge Swollen Pickle Fuzz into a Fulltone Fatboost into a Vox AC30. Please understand this setup does not lend itself to a single coil strat into a Twin Reverb clean sound. But if you're looking for a fat strat sound that will achieve overdrive sounds you didn't think possible with a strat. This is it!
    My American Standard Strat single coils I felt were wimpy and too twangy for my taste. I wanted something beefier that could put out thick overdrive, and also well defined fuzz - jimi like tones...This pickup set will do it!

    The neck pu Lil 59 sounds more defined than a typical 59 in a LP. It's like the definition of a strat pickup combined with the fuller sound of an LP.

    The middle pu Duckbucker sounds like a typical single coil strat pickup without the 60 cycle hum. Use this when you want the vintage strat sound for blues.

    The bridge pu JB Jr absolutely screams. It is thick, full, and will cut through the mix as a lead pickup.
    I've had them installed for over a year now with nothing but attention getting face smacking tone! No function issues whatsoever. Also, a snap to install. Direct single coil replacement.
    3 pickups for $205 on Musicians Friend is a steal...

    Best choice for a hard-tail Strat

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I put these in my Amercian Standard Hardtail Strat and they are excellent. Much more versatile than the stock single coils and far less noise too. Nice, full clean sound (for a Strat) and more output for distortion settings. I luv 'em.

    Good product

    By Strungout-GeKJF

    from Florida

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I installed these on an my American Standard made in 2000. They have greatly expanded the range of the guitar. I can now play without a noise gate, and add a little more compressor as expected with humbuckers. I was looking for more gain on all three pickups and they came through as advertised. Beware though, the Little 59 is a drastic change from the single coil pickup. If you're into dirty blues you might want to look at other options. As stated in other reviews, they do require a fair time investment for setup, but well worth it. I am very pleased with the outcome. The new tone is much better than I expected. The JBJR rivals the Evolution in my Ibanez. The Duckbuckers and the Little 59 Have a good sweet, even, sustaining tone on all strings. The mechanical fit is near perfect. Definitly a worthwile investment.

    Great Pickups

    By JT

    from Long Beach, NY

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    Had these installed by my tech with a 5 way super switch so I could split the coils in position 2 & 4. That singing strat tone is still there in those positions and 1, 3 & 5 are FAT! I was worried about losing traditional strat tone and even though these pups do change the guitar's sound, it's not so different. It opens up so many more tonal characteristics of the guitar. Put em in and try em on low volume first. Nice. Then crank the volume and be prepared. Great pickups.

    Extremely Versatile

    By BumpinThatStrat

    from SW Missouri

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    Now some useful information for the potential Buyer: This set of pickups is capable of pretty much any "tone" you want to have. Playing Fusion I need to have that range from Country to Death Metal...without the Mud. This set will give you a range of tone MOST guitars don't have.Because of the output, versatility, and range these pickups possess I highly suggest you do a little homework on "dialing" in tone and checking out SDs site to get a variety of wiring options. Most bad reviews on this come from folks who just dropped them in and expected to sound like EVH. So be prepared to drop and raise the Pups and poles to your liking. It will take a lot of twiddling to find that sweet spot for you but it's worth it. And they won't de-strat your strat!!!

    Excellent Pickups, Good Packaged Price!

    By bluesrider99-XN1X9

    from Southeast Connecticut, USA

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I bought a used Fernandes Strat copy from my local music store for around $100. As I loved the feel of the neck and the sound, I just couldn't pass it up. Before long, of course, I made some small improvements: new pots, pickup selector switch, and input jack. I wanted more versatility, as I already own a Fender Strat, so after a lot of comparing, reading, and listening, I bought and installed the Everything Axe pickup set.Does these pickups do everything? Of course not; not literally. But what it is supposed to do, it does great! I have no noise, humbucker sounds, and Strat sounds in positions 2 and 4. The volume and tone pots are MUCH more usable than my Fender, which is giving me ways to express my music in ways I couldn't before. I can get good tones in every genre I play: blues, rock, jazz, rockabilly, and swing. That's close enough to "everything" for me!I read that some folks had trouble adjusting the pickups so that the output level was matched. It took awhile to get that for me as well, but it isn't difficult; it just takes awhile--and with the end result being what it is, it was well worth the time.My only niggle is that you are limited to white. If you want black, you have to buy the pickups separately. If you want cream (which was my original color choice), well, you're hosed. White it is, then. I'm sure they'll yellow over they years like my Fender has, so in 15 years or so, they'll be fine.One more note: Be sure to check out Seymour Duncan's website for wiring schematics. They are very good and with the exception of not showing the ground connections, complete.Good luck, and keep jamming!

    Strat magic

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I installed this set in my American Standard Strat and I'm very happy with the results. The guitar is now extremely quiet; no hum or buzz at all. The volume and tone pots exhibit increased response. The guitar has a unique tone at each position on the 5-way switch. I love what they've done for my strat. The only negative for this package is that you can have any color you want as long as you want white.Help us out guys, offer the set in black and cream...please.

    Too Much Fun...

    By Kansas Strat Cat

    from Kansas

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I placed these into my 1990 American Standard Strat and have not regretted it once. The guys at Seymour helped me get the wiring just right with only one tone and one volumn knob (both push-pull). I can get coil splits, bridge neck, etc. 15 different combinations in all. Here's what's important: GET THEM SET TO THE RIGHT HEIGHT. At first mine were set too high and were all muddy. After dialing them in, they're awesome. The difference in tone from one setting to another is crazy cool. Sounds like I have so many guitars all built into this one axe. Silky smooth blues leads or broken up rock sounds, so nice.

    Awesome Tone

    By Ty-UCaT5

    from The South

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    This rig has a great mix of tones. The JB Jr. is tight and clean but rocks with a TubeScreamer. The Duckbucker provides sweet out-of-phase Strat tones in the 2 & 4 positions. The Lil '59 sounds like a Gibson MiniHumbucker, which is fantastic. It has amazing warmth and clarity. I'm much happier with this set up than I was with the Noiseless rig I was using. My Strat is now a session-master as far a versatility is concerned. I am thrilled with this pickup combo!

    An Awesome Set up

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I'm extremely picky when it comes to tone... I know want I want but sometimes don't know how to get there. I have tried lace, "too shrill". I've tried combined HSS with a pearly gates, which was nice but not quite what I was looking for. I decided to go with a pre-matched set that seem to fit all my needs.This set is really somewhere between a traditional single coil and a humbucker. I set these pickups with a standard tone on the neck and a TBX on the middle and bridge to help dial in the amount of clarity I want,. it works out perfectly. I can get every ary of sound you can think of.. from "sorrow" PinkFloyd ot clapton's new stuff "Danger" road to escondito jj cale and clapton... I particullarly like the Lil' 59. Wow, talk about your rerpo of the real thing, total LP sound for blues and muffled horn like tone with tone turned down. Very Led Zepp in blues area.The middle pick up: I've never wanted to use the middle by itself until now. You can actually get a new sound thats useful and creative as before it was so dull and lifeless. This Pick up Set is with out a doubt the bomb and worth the money. I'd continue to buy this set up for any future guitar that come my way.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    I'm a retired custom shop luither. Trust me! This is a great pickups match if you want your strat can play all kinds of music. I've even installed one set on my own guitar. Only one thing you gotta know is to raise the mid pickup duckbucker a little bit higher than the other 2 pickups.

    A Little More Than I Bargained For

    By pKnGrN

    from Marquette Heights, IL

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

    First off let me say that these are realy good pickups, If anybody has any reserves as to the mini-humbucker thing, I can assure you that mini means size, not output, and no routing required. But I think that "Everything Axe" is a bit misleading. They will make your Strat sound like almost anything, any that is except a Strat. I was looking to be able to dirty up the sound a little bit, But these babys are like going from Charlie Brown to Pig Pen. Thats fine when I'm cranking some rock rhythms or some low and nasty blues.But try something clean...forget it. The Duckbucker sounds nice but you can still tell its a 'bucker. I'll play em for now cause they do sound cool, but I think In the long run I'm going to miss the "twang". Maybee a single back on the neck Hmmm...

        Great Combo

        from CapeCod, MA

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

        I recently put a set of these in one of my strats and it's fast becoming my favorite pickup combo. The JB Jr has hot output and it's not too clean and not to distorted, just right, especially with a good overdrive. The JB Jr. is perfect for any style of music. The 59er on the neck is great for blues and rock and you can you crank it up with overdrive for heavy blues, hard rock and metal. It has a smooth and creamy sound when used clean. The Duckbucker makes a great addition to the combo when used alone, for a vintage tone, or mixed with the other two to give you a wide variety of tones. With this setup I have found I can play anything from Hendrix to Iron Maiden. The more I play with this set the more I love it.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

        I used these to replace the standard single coil pickups on my 2008 Mexican Strat. The originals sounded good but the 60 Hz hum was unbearable.The sound changed after installing the Everything Axe pickups but I cannot tell how much since I do not have any reference other than the memory. Even more so since at the same time I installed a Graph Teck Black Tusq XL nut and a set of Graph Tech Original String Saver saddles.These pickups sound good, really good and are really quiet. For now I have them set at 1/8". With time I will play some more with the height of the pickups and the pole pieces.

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Everything Axe Single-Coil Electric Guitar Pickup Set:

        When I saw what this set can do it was love at fist sight. After playing them for the fist time, I was convinced that this was the best set of pick-ups ever. I recommend this set for anyone planning on building a guitar that can do just about anything (that's why I bought them) or anyone who wants to make their guitar versatile enough to play any kind of music. So to who ever is reading this, you should buy this set.
