#1. The L-280S pickups are probably the most versatile and functions well in most guitars and with most amps. Using different height adjustments and an assortment of amp settings, the L280S can reproduce a wide range of sounds, especially if the player uses a variety of right hand techniques. It's often described as a soft P-90! And with the L-290SL in the bridge position, it is our most popular replacement set!
#2. The L-200S is different. While the L-280S reproduces a very linear harmonic spectrum, the L-200S, with some dips in the lower midrange and some nice peaks in the upper midrange, gives you a more "Stratty" sound without losing that certain sweetness. It you like the 50's sound, the L-200S is for you!
#3. The L-298S is "The Working Horse of our Noisefree Singles". It performs at its best in the lead position where you need rich lows, combined with a good amount of bite, without getting muddy or harsh. The L298S, in combination with our Q-filter, can give you the widest variety of sounds, ranging from Ultra-Sweet to High Power Performance!
Reggie Young is using the L-280SN/M & L-290SL pickups in his 57 Strat over 10 years!
Thank you Reggie.
