Has anyone tried these yet?

I’m thinking about grabbing the Tui’s with a Blue Sky humbucker.

Glynn is a good guy and he's been rewinding for at least 20 years, I would think anything he puts his name on is going to be awesome :)
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

Well it is a great time to support local so I have a set of these on the way. Couple of Tui singles with a Blue sky bridge.
As you said Glynn was incredible to deal with.

Got a Tui set on the way for my strat. Thought about going Lollar/BKP/SD or similar but would prefer to support a local and I'm sure Glyn will have these dialled in pretty good.

i queried if he can make his hb's unpotted, but he suggested not to do it i.e. just lighlty pot instead...i went with another maker this time but will surely consider him if i will need pickups in the future.

According to the creator I have a set of Tuis, which I have in a James Tyler Strat. I’m apparently getting a Blue Sky hb with some Bellbirds

I follow Glynn on Instagram. He "wonders about some of this push fit wiring he sees these days".

Not too sure who he could be talking about there :wtf:
