Hi!
That?s interesting! So you got the Vin B A5 in your Tokai!

This is not the Pickup being tested in that "stupid" test in that german magazine! (I know a lot of details behind the walls!)

The Vin B A5 is a pickup that fits really great in a Tokai LP!

How do you like these pickups?

bye, "ACY"


The pickup and the guitar are fantastic - The pickups have Haeussel PAF Vin B and PAF VIN N on them . If you check out that link and read the thread you'll see picyutes of them.

Poor Harry never got paid for supplying them !

They are very true to the PAF and are not wax potted so they will squeel if pushed into a high volume.

I am an avid switcher of pickups, but I will not be changing these babies. I took the guitar into a local Gibson dealer and the owner did an A - B test of the guitar against his stock of Les Pauls. He had to admit that it had the better tone.

Hi!
So you can understan why "my" long lasting search for the right PU?s is over since a couple of years! And I did not count the really big number of all kinds of pickups I replaced to find my tone!

good on ya, "ACY"

P.S.: I?ll tell Harry what ya wrote in your posting!!!!!!!!

Anyone tried Seymour Duncan Phat cats?

I've been thinking of getting some humbucker sized P90 for my Love rock. I'd like to get a bit better clean and semiclean tone's and the P90 style pickups seem tempting (Haven't actually _played_ a guitar with P90's before).

So I thought...

I'm trying to decide between Phat Cat's or H?ussel Humbucker sized P90.

Maybe I'll just get one of each

Great thread


Just got a Tokai and found I like also my Single Coil sounds of my Telecaster.

I am interested in setting up my Tokai for versatile single coil / Humbuckler configurations similar to the S1 system on Strats

Any ideas on pickups, wiring and switches to be able to do that ?
