Just to let everyone know, my new webpage is up at There
are complete in-depth descriptions of all seven models of my pickups,
reviews from magazines and accolades from world famous guitarists who use

This is revolutionary patented technology that once and for all solves the
problems of sacred vintage Stratocaster tone in noiseless single-coil
pickup sound. My pickups capture the elusive and fragile nuances of the
great old Strat pickups of yesteryear, in their entirety. That’s why I
call them the AVn series; (AVn =Absolute Vintage noiseless).

They are superbly engineered and manufactured to exacting standards, even
if I do say so myself. These passive pickups are as quiet as the best
active pickups available and you don’t even have to change the volume pot
to fit them. For a breath of fresh air on the Strat pickup scene, check
the web site, see for yourself.

They are available in America, England, Denmark, Holland, Italy, Germany,
Japan and, of course, Australia.
