Upgraded my Fender Strat with Fishman Fluence pickups

Just upgraded my Strat with Fishman Fluence single space pickups. I wanted a no-hum pickup that still sounds like single-coils. I really liked the Fishmans I installed in the CT6M and bought a Strat kit. Here’s the result: I also upgraded the tuners to Fender staggered locking tuners. I also replaced the bridged with a Wilkinson/Gotoh VS-100N Tremolo. Everything together has been amazing.

Upgraded the Carvin CT6M with Fishman Fluence Pickups

I upgraded my Carvin CT6M with some Fishman Fluence modern humbucker blacks. The original pickups where the Kiesel/Carvin Allan Holdsworth HH2 model. The new Fluences are the modern ceramic for the bridge and alnico for the neck. The bridge sound like a typical modern high-output humbucker. The alnico one sounds really interesting and very vocal. I enabled the second voicing using the push-pull tone knob. The volume push-pull controlls the coil-spit which enables the out-side cores on each pickup as single-coils. CONTINUE>>

Kiesel Vader V6 Pickup Upgrade

I upgraded the pickups in my Kiesel Vader V6. Originally it had the stock Lithium pickups. I switched them out for a set of Dimarzio Evolution pickups. They are a set of the bridge and neck six string pickups. These are the same as the ones on my Jem, but with out the single coil. I was told by a tech from Kiesel said the Lithiums had the same wire polarity as Dimarzio. CONTINUE>>
