The result of a painstaking R&D process that involved nearly 20 prototypes is what we feel to be an authentic 1:1 clone of the finest example from the golden era of T-Top pickups. This is THE definitive tone with an instantly recognizable voicing that for maybe the first time ever is available to musicians who don't have thousands of dollars to gamble on a vintage set of T-Tops. SoloDallas pickups offer precision tolerances and European handcrafted quality that make them a sure bet for anyone in search of that elusive 70s guitar tone.
After hearing the drastic improvement the newly created Solo71 T-Tops made in some of his vintage SGs, Fil decided to give them a try in one of his vintage LPs. "Holy Rock-a-mole!" It was in that moment that he realized not only are these pickups responsible for the iconic tone produced by 68-71 SGs, but they are also the pickups used by many legends who play LPs from that era. With a little research Fil discovered that LPs from that short time frame are extremely popular among famous guitarists known for having the ultimate LP tone. These guys are all on to something... and now, so are we!
Solo71 pickups are available as a single bridge pick up or as a set. Covers choices are shiny, bare and aged nickel. If you'd like a extra pickup cover in the same finish as your ordered pickup (to match the outlook of your other pickups), you can add it to your shopping cart here.
