Got the pickups installed and thought I'd do a short video. Had the tone turned down to bass for the first few measures.

This thing plays absolutely fantastic. Intonation is as good as any I've ever owned. I am very very happy with how this guitar plays. Every bit as good as my 2006 Les Paul Standard Premium Plus.

Here is the clean tones. Cell phone seems to add more bass than live.

Hope my new x310 will sound as good. I refinished the top and installed a 57 and 57 plus.

The bridge pickup was just listed as a "Electra vintage bridge pickup" So I'm not sure. The neck pickup was just listed as a 10.86 K Humbucker.

They sound wonderful, the sound really fits the guitar style (if you know what I mean). Enjoy it, that Zephyr is one of the most beautiful models. :love:

Those should sound great in an X310 - at least I would expect them to :D

I got it with the top finish removed and unoriginal pickups, I did use the five way though.
