Is there anyone who have played an this guitar with Lollars and Larrivee's now pickups? I have no idea how the Larrivee PU's sound.
Are they quite similar to the Jasons or change it the RS4 in another guitar ?

Matthew Larrivee's own take on the difference between the Lollars and his pickups is this: the Lollars have a little more output; his goal with winding his own pickups was to open up the natural sound (of the wood) a little more and have pickups with a more 'vintage' personality. He said the Lollars are great pickups, but just a little hotter than what he wanted to hear...

OK, thanks for reply. I just lowered the lollars a bit, that opens the sound of the axe more than the factory configuration.
The lollars by itself are not ver hotbut i made u hughe difference...

Yup, pickup height is an easy tone tweak that lots of players overlook...
