NOS Kent Armstrong Sets - Delia, Lola, Sheena - several bass/treble sets

Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:

Kent Armstrong pickup Sets -

Gold Delia sets - 5 sets available
4 conductor bridge
2 conductor neck
--From GP Magazine:
Tonally, Delia tends towards the brighter side of the spectrum, with lots of spank and sparkle from both pickups. You wont get warm and woody Sco or boldly biting B.B. tones out of Delia, as you might expect from this type of guitar. But the sounds Delia does make are loaded with personality, ranging from pleasantly snappy to borderline out-of-phase snarky. This is a great rhythm guitar, especially for funk, and she cuts through dense mixes without being too obvious. Delia can also rage on overdriven settings, though, once again, these tones tend to live in the upper-mid part of the spectrum. If youre in search of original semi-hollow sounds that are still in the ballpark of classic thinlines, Delia is definitely worth an audition.

Chrome Lola set - 1 available
4 conductor bridge
2 conductor neck
--From GP Magazine:
Lola sounded good through all of the amplifiers. The neck pickup was rich and well rounded on clean settings, and smooth and silky on overdriven settings, like youd expect from, say, an old Les Paul Junior. The bridge pickup produced fat yet toothy sounds similar to those made by a vintage SG, and with the series/parallel switch engaged, the tone thinned out nicely for rhythm playing.

Chrome Sheena set - 5 available
4 conductor bridge - Humbucker
2 conductor neck - P-90-like single-coil
--From GP Magazine:
On clean amp settings, the P-90-like single-coil in the neck slot dishes up meaty yet well-defined notes and chords, while the bridge humbucker is naturally much edgier, venturing into Tele territory with the series/parallel switch engaged. On overdriven settings, both pickups deliver substantial crunch and bite, and with the gain cranked up Sheena sings with a wonderful sweetness and sustain.


Might Have some small scuffs here and there - cosmetic in nature only
Have plastic film covers on face of pickups
