Lawrence Samarium pickup review

Dave Stephens Lawrence Samarium pickup review
Another player pointed out the new Fender strat with Lawrence's samarium cobalt magnets on the wall at Guitar Center so tried it out. They sound ok, kinda P90-ish, which isn't surprising as Lawrence's design is similar, they still sound like Lawrence pickups, though stronger output than any of his I've tried. The switch in the volum knob gives alot of different tones, I still prefer a real single coil versus thiese things. Its missing that real single coil richness. The switch was horribly, it was noisy and cheap feeling, new off the shelf. Just another pickup, nothing special IMHO....Dave
