These pickups are nothing short of brilliant. They sing with chime and sparkle. But it's the complexity, the nuances, that will mesmerize most Strat players. [...] I have tried countless pickups, and I can say with absolute certainty that no pickup has ever inspired my playing as much as these have. [...] Matt is also a great guy to work with - young, passionate, knowledgable and incredibly professional. I feel like I have been given a rare opportunity to connect with a pickup maker who is destined to become a legend.
Installed a set of Hogtowns in my Les Paul Trad - they sound fantastic! The bridge has a great midrange - very clear with a nice sizzle - great from clean to hard rock -Neck is beautiful for leads very open without mud - Excellent customer service and delivery time! Don't hesitate, just try them!
I did a build where I put a Rainville P90 in the neck, and a Big Smoke Humbucker in the bridge. Not sure which one I like more, which is a great problem to have.
I don't know how Matt does it, but that P90 is not noisy at all. From a tone standpoint, in the neck position, there is a warmth *plus* bite that you just aren't going to find in either a single coil or a humbucker. [...] I'm thrilled with my purchase, just like I've been with everything Matt has built for me.
