What are your opinions on the Talman? - and by the way...
Just bought a used Talman with a nice sunburst and the 3 lipstick pickups. My reason for purchase was the fact that the guitar is ,in my opinion, a beautiful example of the line, and the price was real cheap. It will be the first in my collection. Time will tell if it will also be the last or not.
So I have a few questions about these guys,
1: How is a lipstick pickup different than a regular single or humbucking pickup, in terms of tone and design?
2: Does anyone know the neck specs? ie. radius, scale length, mm measurments etc.....
3: If i decide the pickups suck, where can i find replacements that sound good and will maintain the stock appearance?
4: And lastly, if any of you guys have any experience with these little animals, i will be glad to hear your opinions. good or bad.
