All I needed
By Chris Keuken
My fretless G&L L2500 was already supposed to have excellent pups, but the low end was wanting. These Bartolini pups bring out the best in my low B and still allow a very open sound in the high register. I dig the single coil settings, but the humbucker options are very good as well.
