fritferret,

All I can say is you are one "VERY LUCK DUDE" to have 4 RS-4's! wacko

Those are some "SMOKIN COLORS" that you have their! I have to say that
I am particularly fond of the "TOBACCO BURST"! drool

Do any of your RS-4's have the original LOLLAR pickups in them that Larrivee
first started out with and if so how do they stack up against the LARRIVEE HB
pickups which I think are "FANTASTIC"!

Mac U R right in your assessment the Larrivee PUPS are "FANTASTIC"! tho so are the Lollars. Having said that if I could only keep one set I'd keep the Larrivee's IMHO a little closer to the PAF tone sittin in my head anyway. The Lollars are a little hotter tho.

Everyone ought to have a set of each and a P90 or two blush

JOYCEfromNS,

I agree with your feelings on the LARRY HB's! They are closer to a true PAF but I
would like to have an RS-4 with that extra  bark and bite that the LOLLARS
obviously have! I will go on record and say that the "PAF STYLE HB" that has
garnered the most "PRAISE" over the last year is from "THROBAK PICKUPS"!
They will set you back a COOL $450 for a set of them! whistling

Guess what? Matthew and the OWNER/BUILDER of THROBAK PICKUPS it turns
out are very good friends! That's all I know folks!

If it's Bark and Bite U are after did U ever consider a Gibson 498T to drop in and they wouldn't be much more than a  Benjamin Franklin 

Just a thought

Yes I have heard about those particular GIBSON HB's! I am going to try and pick
up a used GIBBY LP PRE-2006 (before they started routing the bodies for weight relief)
and add a pair of the "THROBAKS" to it! No I am not bailing out on LARRIVEE ELECTRICS!

Their are way to many AWESOME BOUTIQUE BUILT guitars to not take advantage of
in this golden age! I am just happy to have taken advantage of the RS-4 and RS-2
already!

i think the best non-boutique humbuckers i've played are the dimarzio 36th ann pups.  they are probably the best tone value out there.  i swapped the lollars out of two of the rs-4s that came w/ them.  they were a little hot for my tastes.  i replaced them with some of the best pups on the market: tom short pickups, the marc ford model and the tombucker.  tom and matthew are in my opinion making the best pups out there.

fritferret,

I have heard and read a lot about the TOM SHORT PICKUPS and the two models you
mentioned! I bet those sound "MIGHTY FINE" in your RS-4's! Man you have an
arsenal of "BADASS TONE" with those 4 RS-4's! 

Yes Matthew's HB's can hang with the best in my opinion also!

Would love to hear a soundclip of your RS-4's with the TOM SHORT HB's!!

If you want to sell those Larrivee pickups, just let me know...

neverrrrrrrr!  i can't see myself selling these pups, ever.  although, i did think about selling one set over on the thegearpage since the folks over there are so into all things boutique.  my thinking was that if someone could try instead of just hearing me rave about them, i'm interest would explode.  nut then i thought i should just make a recording and keep my pups!

I just figured since you had put some different pups in your RS-4's - or did I misunderstand, and you put those pups in a different guitar? Hate to see any Larrivee pups lying around unused, when I could find a home for them TONIGHT!!!
