Hi Curtis, they sound fantastic mate! I played the Tele through a Fender Princeton Blackface and it rocks!! – Fred Fairbrass

Right Said Fred

Using this pickup in my Fender it feels like every element of the tone is simply there — clear, well-defined low end, robust mids and highs that have a wonderfully smooth presence — all unhindered, immediate and full. Thanks Curtis for building my dream Precision pickup!” – Byron

Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Robert Plant

"I didn't even want to say because I love them so much that I don't want everyone to have em..! For musical feedback its up in the wizard area!"

Marc Ford - (The Black Crowes, The Magpie Salute)

"I asked curtis to come up with a lipstick for the middle and a stealth neck humbucker for my missingmen guitarman tom watson's jazzmaster. both are beautiful buttloads of sonic giving more vocabulary to express himself - we both bow big time in curtis' direction."

on bass, Watt

"Last night, onstage with my dad (Randy Bachman, from BTO) in Saint Paul, Minnesota, I had my first opportunity to plug in Excalibur with Curtis's pickup inside. I do not say this lightly, but I was amazed and thrilled. So was the whole band... What I like most of all is that there is a certain 'airiness', a certain 'liveliness', there which is just awesome. This pickup has legitimately hit the sweet spot between 'hot rod excitement' and musicality. It's staying in the SG forever. Thanks, Curtis!"
