Hi. I received my Mr. Scary pickup today serial #00008…just wanted to say thank you for offering these up for sale. The packaging and everything overall from ordering to getting the final product in hand was excellent. I know you probably hear a lot of complaints more than praise, so i just wanted to take a second to say thank you and let you know I really appreciate being able to purchase this pickup.

I’ve been a big fan of George’s since the 80s and this was a great experience.

Thank you,
Lance R.

Hi George…

I finally got around to installing the Mr Scary pup…it’s outstanding! I love it!

I just ordered another one!

Thank you again for making these available.

Just wanted to say that the pickup rocks.

I got my Mexi strat setup with the Mr. Scary pickup in the bridge and a Dimarzio Pro track in the neck. These just sing! Such a simple setup and they rock. I love it when you find a piece of gear that helps you play better. This guitar sounds like a million dollars.

I would just like to say that I have tried just about every Guitar pickup that is out there over the last 30 years and there is good one and bad ones ! some I put in my guitar and took out the same day. .After installing the new MR SCARY pickup I was amazed by the tone that came out of my small lil Marshall practice amp. I didn’t even put it thru my big live rig and I could tell a huge difference .More Lows but not muddy,crisp High’s but not thin ,and the Mids cut thru and rip your head off.I used the Screaming demon for a while but this is hotter and just is a huge improvement on my tone.Thank you George and Danica Lynch for the top notch treatment and the rock kin pickup!

Hi George…I finally got around to installing the pickup in my les paul and it sounds frickin amazing.   I love it and couldn’t be happier with the way my guitar sounds now!   Thanks so much for helping me out the way you did!!!   I’m stoked for that!
