    Just got my Warmoth Gecko bass from my luthier and all I can say is WOW!!! David Schwab at SGD lutherie made these pickups for me and I am beyond words for the tone and sound they have!! This is EXACTLY what I was wanting as far as tone!! If anyone has any doubts about his pickups, come pick this monster up and play it!! You wont be disappointed!!!

    I've got a couple sets of these in my two Carvin Icon five-strings. But I'm not beyond words... :p

    They are deep. They are phat. They are big. They are clean. They are smooth. They are full-range. They are balanced. They are refined. They are powerful. :cool:

    The SGD ND3s produce some of the nicest modern, hi-fi soapbar tone I've ever heard. I love 'em.

    You took the word away from me!!! This thing is a beast with these pickups!! Rattled the house even on LOW volume!!
     
  4. I agree.

    When I think hi-fi, I kind of think of bland and lifeless, but not these, they have character and richness. I don't think I'll find a better pickup.

    Well, you weren't using them... :smug:

    "Hi-fi" gets a bum rap. It's a term that has come to mean something that it doesn't really mean. :meh:
