Memphs 1978,

Here's info on Dream 180: From GFS Website.

These are clasically gorgeous humbucking pickups made to combine the chime and jangle of vintage Filtertrons with the warmth and body of a great pair of vintage PAF's- To accomodate modern playing styles we wound 'em HOT- and vacuum impregnated them with enough wax to make a candle. The result? Dead quiet, yet loud and toneful! Polepieces are matched to the string spread- 2 1/8" at the bridge, 2" at the neck.


They're fabulous sounding- Big and full with LOTS of Filtertron tone, but with a fatter, warmer and yet crunchier body. Thanks to the metal shell they are dead quiet , and the sense of string attack and dynamics is flat-out fabulous.

Thom, your DS looks great! It's cool how we can unique-ify our guitars. I stayed with the all-black theme with mine - black Mean 90s, solid black pickguard and TRC (TWANG, too). Now I'm looking for solid black speed knobs. I'll post photos when I can borrow a digital camera (or take pics with my quaint 35mm film camera and scan them).
