Re: Opinions on Kent Armstrong pickups...
I used to be all-about Armstrong pickups: they were cheap, sounded great, and the customer service was impeccable. However, over time the "motherbucker" and M215 (the "metal" hi-gain pickup) started to sound worse and worse. My rig hadn't changed, the guitars were fine- maybe it was my tastes.
Their prices have gone up alot, and I really don't think that for $70 you're getting a better pickup from Armstrong than you would from Dimarzio or Duncan.
