I've read a lot of the threads here about GFS pickups. Based upon what I've gathered here and several other places, it would seem to me like they probably have a few different tones if you compare their humbuckers to p90's to single coil pickups. Do GFS pickups prioritize looks over sound/tone? Now, this is all based on what I've read online. I haven't purchased a set and tried them in a guitar.
I've purchased a number of things over the years that were misinformed and I ended up losing money over. If I get a set of GFS pickups, I don't even know that I could re-sell them if they didn't work out. So I guess I just don't want to spend hard earned money on something if it's not certain what I'm getting. Maybe I just answered my own question here.
