    Looks amazing, and a full size floating humbucker with some cool wiring options.

    I’d love to know people’s experience with this and also where to get one.

    Thanks for the help

    Thanks, I’ll likely order one too.

    What kind of guitar are you putting it on?

    I've played several guitars that had this pup installed and I liked the tone - quite articulate, but also warm and fat sounding. It's also quite thin so it fits on guitars with a more shallow neck angle. Boris has been around and knows guitars....

    You might also look into the Krivo offerings if you're crunched for space.

    Hey Jazznote

    Wondering if you got this pickup yet and have installed it?

    I got it, and i'm slowly getting closer to installing. My aim is to keep the old pickguard unchanged so that i can put it back anytime. So far i received the new pickguard, fit the PU on the PG and designed and assembled the electronic kit according to Boris Dommenget's diagram. Next step is to lacquer the pickguard and then i will finish the whole thing.

    The adjustment of the polepieces seems to be a little awkward, opposed to screws which show on Dommenget's website foto they are just bolts which can be adjusted only by hammering with a tool he provided. He writes that they are preadjusted for a wound g string, but obviously for further adjustment the PU needs to be detached from the guitar everytime.

    It looks great but I was hoping to be able to turn the pole screws.

    Was it your idea to use a thumb wheel because I’m hoping to use tone and volume pot?

    Thanks

    It definitely would be better to be able to turn the pole screws. Recently i played in a venue which was very difficult acoustically and it actually helped the sound a lot to be able to quickly adjust the polepieces of the 12 pole KA for the low E and A strings during the soundcheck.
    And yes, the thumbwheel was my idea. A second pot knob on the PG might be a bit in the way of my right hand.

    It’s hard to tell from the pic, but do the pole pieces even have flathead screw slots . They kinda look like slugs. A big part of the appeal for me was the pole piece look of a paf.

    Thanks!
