I purchased this pickguard, in order to upgrade the electronic from the Fernandes The revival i bought (here too!). This is absolutely a good setup, well assembly with quality components. The sound is astonishing, a lot of details and the versality which is offered thanks to the tapped pick-ups is quite great. You can find your knopfler sound of the early DS albums but many others, the vfs-1 has been used by a lot (Gilmour). I never had such pleasure to play a guitar but with this fabulous guitar and pickguard. Ingo is a rare person, by his professionalism, his kindness and especially his passion for DS/MK. He's probably the best specialist of Mark Knopfler today. You can rely on him, you won't be disapointed because he don't tell things he's not sure of. I let you visit his blog, it's a gold mine.
