So I have played it a bit, and I like both pickups. The GFS Fat Pat makes a nice neck pickup (i'm using the bridge version,
howver in the neck, because the Bill Lawrence (OBL L900XL) is pretty high out put. The Fat Pat gives a fairly high amount
of ouput and enough bass and clarity to help compenste for the trebly sounding OBL (not to say the OBL lacks low end, it doesn't,
but it has a lot of high end).
If I were to do it all over, I would seriously consider getting a pair of chrome humbuckers from Dragonfire or Guitarheads
instead of GFS. Because they charge half as much. I would also consider their rails pickups, and I would like to try them
and compare to the Bill Lawrence.
But I am pretty happy overall with the sound these pups give. OBL in the bridge, Fat Pat in the neck. Plenty crunch in
the bridge and tone in the neck. THey help make up for the basswood's flat tonal characteristics.
I have a brand new BIll Lawrence (Wilde Pickups) L500XL on the way here from Bill and Becky (Wilde Designs). I will put
that in the Floyde Rose Redmond Series K guitar. Still trying to decide on a neck pup, might use the old SG BUlly bridge pup.
It's high output and bassy sounding, which would make it a good complement to the Wilde L-900XL.
I finally got around to installing this bad boy. I have not tuned the guitar and started playing it yet. I plugges it
in really quick; yes it souns high output and seems to be ptretty trebly/high end sounding.
Here are some pics for now. I will play it some more and post again here in the next few days.
In the neck position we have a GFS Fat PAT
; brand new got it from GuitarFetish. They are a good merchant to deal with. Only thing is, I am still evaluating this pickup.
True it's "only $40 (shipped)", but you can get 2 humbuckers for $40 from Guitarheads and Dragonfire. In fact, you can get
ACTIVE pickups from either one for the same price as passives at GFS! But with GFS, he puts your pickup in a nice see-thru
plastic box! lol
Anyway, the GFS Fat Pat is supposed to be BASSY (kind of), and therefore should be a good neck pickup to counter the
trebly tendancies of the OBL L-900.
So yeah; I will get back and post reviews on the PUPs within a few days or so.
