Only had a few minutes with the Green Fazes at the shop on Saturday and they sound amazing. Managed to crack my bone nut awhile back and it's starting to go. Should have everything fitted and back next weekend.

Declan, wire those up as you see best fit mate.
You know what is best better than I.
I assume the vintage braid is the hot black wire and the shield is ground, yeah?
Not a 2 wire + shield?

Oh you think with the braided it is pointless?
I mean the reverse winding on the neck would still produce the out of phase on the middle position, which is what I want.
The 2 conductor plus shield on Greens must have still been a 2 grounds and a live or did each conductor go to a coil?
Definitely don't need the coil tap, they are fun but didn't use mine much.
I am so confused now Declan haha, help me Obi Wan.


No not wasted, but you can't undo it as easily as with a two wire with shield and a normal insulation,

Not sure about the originals but on my versions, both conductors go to a coil and the shield to the baseplate allowing you to choose which one to ground, so you can undo the out of phase and have them behave like normal humbuckers simply by switching the conductors round. With vintage braid you would need to flip the magnet.

there is always more than one way to get to where you want to go

Ah OK...well if it is vintage braid then all good.
I didn't see a 2 conductor + ground option when ordering and I ordered them to be out of phase so i wouldn't dare switch that anyway

Just asking ...

Hi Udonitron, yes they went out with Vintage braid. and if you ever get sick of the out of phase tone then you are still only one magnet flip away from a regular middle pickup sound.

I am out of standard 2 wire for another week or so, but it will go on the website as an option, and no problem dombat doing vintage on one and 2 wire or 4 wire on the other. Whatever combo you want is fine. Just let me know in the notes on any order and it will be sorted for you

I have been trying to source some Grey coloured two wire but it looks like black will have to do for the time being

What's the verdict? Better than or as good as the infamous Dry Zs?

So, finally back in town for a bit and had the opportunity to take my new Deacci Green Faze pickups for a drive in my Bacchus LP

They're very articulate pickups. No mushiness in the reverse wound neck pickup. Not boomy either. Clear, lively and creamy "woman tone" vibe with the tone rolled down. Very balanced to the bridge pickup too.

The bridge has a really great snarl about it. Sharp and clear without icepick brittleness. Really opens up when you dig into it.

Middle position evokes that killer Peter Green / Tbone Walker out of phase honk. By rolling up the volume a bit on either the bridge or the neck pickup really allows the output to bloom. Interestingly, with both volume pots at the same level, the output is noticeably thin sounding - until you roll the neck or bridge volume up a notch - you can really hear it swell when you do.
Also playing with the tone a bit, you come up with some interesting tonal possibilities. I really love the sound out of phase - but I did go with the four conductor wire so that I could wire them in phase if I wish. Lots of versatility with this set.

I can't speak to whether these are Dry Z killers - for two reasons. I've not played Dry Z's and because these are a Peter Green set. Curious to hear what the others say (like Mitch) about the set you went with (Twos?) and how they stack up. I'm a happy camper.

I have 3 sets of Deaccis... Pure Vintage Zeros, Pure Vintage Ones and Pure Legend GreenFazes and I love them all. Awesome pickups all the way around!

Got mine in yesterday and played through the Super Tweed clone for about 15 mins, sounded awesome but looking forward to cranking it after work and see how they sound with some driven tubes 😀

And from the 1st December this will happen.....

But then the prices will rise too . I suppose if I am going to call them Pure Vintage they should be dressed accordingly
