Pics soon. I just wanted to say holy CRAP these ~5K AntiHum pickups sound unbelievable into a JCM800. What a sound! I grabbed it from the pile to do my string change cleanup pre-review thing and I blew an hour just playing around with different amps. This is the first Guild I've had in my hands with the ~5K pickups, and damn.

Ooh I'm wrong - they're 7k pickups. Never mind. :)

The thought has crossed my mind to get two NS guitars of the same model and swap pups to have a 5k only and a 7.5k to have a fair comparison.

🤣 I totally adore the (real) 5Ks in my Bluesbird. Perfect combo of midrange warmth and treble super-clarity. The NS 5K is IMO a real nice pickup too, but not the same thing.
