I am absolutely LOVING the pickups! Now I need to get another set of pickups for my Gibson 335 & my next Tele & Strat builds.

My Virgil Arlo pickups sound fantastic. It is hard to stop jamming & get down to learning my new song. The Humbucker is so smooth and clean and the bridge just sings like a bird. Sounds great in the middle position too.

-Richard McRae, Legendary Guitarist for George Strait

I went to a Session right after getting my Arlo's installed. My Guitar sounded so good, the Engineer asked "what are you doing different". I told him, I just got a set of Virgil Arlo Pickups. I love the tone of these pickups.

Mr. Arlo makes Incredible Pickups! Over the years, I've played a lot of different pickups & the Virgil Arlo's are the best. The best by far!

I've owned many vintage guitars. The Arlo's make my newer guitars sound better than vintage guitars. They make my older guitars sound even better than they did before. Mr. Arlo makes amazing stuff, they're the best you can get!

-Wilbert Crosby Sr., Guitarist - Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples.

I've tried all of the more expensive pickups. The Arlo's sound amazing. I can't say enough good things about them. Now I'm wondering if there's not some proprietary technique that only Virgil Arlo knows to make pickups that sound this good"

-Hadden Sayers, Blues Recording Artist.

They are so close (to my 1956 Strat), it's really hard to tell the difference... I think they're the best Strat Pickups made.
