Very nice. Classic '57s are one of my favorites.

I like them too, but today I swapped them for a set of Cream-T Custom '61 as I wanted a little more output from the bridge PU.

Won't get rid of the Classic '57s though, I think... There are Classic '57s in my ES 335 too, and they suit that guitar very well.

Cream-T pickups are new to me. Thanks for the article.

 

Sadly the guy who made them, has gone under ground. There are still some single pickups and sets circulating, though.

I've adjusted them to my liking and recorded a tiny bit of noodling.

 

Nice Noodling!

Sounds great! Lots of sustain there.

I listened on my monitors and they sound fantastic. I can see why you like them.

I found a pair here for $469.00 delivered.

A bit pricey for me.
