"The level of expression Wagner's brought to my playing is something I'll be forever grateful for. Finally a pick up that captures all the nuance of my hands, the woods of my guitars and the subtleties of my amplifiers. Organic, three dimensional, honest and warm. These pickups made me a better player, no question."

"After about 30 seconds of playing Jim's Ironmans I was blown away. Had to have 'em. These things ROCK! I play a lot of styles and the great thing is how versatile these pickups are. They'll shred big time with plenty of crunch, but they sound warm and crystal clear using them clean. Plug 'em into your Marshall and see what happens"

"These pickups have more tone and response than anything I've ever played.From great balls of fire to clean rhythm,they help to catch the expression of the music I'm tryin to make.Wonderful sustain and colors of tone for any kind of playing.Congradulations Jim.......you've done it!

"Made my LP sound TWICE as good as it used to!
You also solved my original predicament: the muddiness of the neck & the brightness of the bridge. I played the guitar in a session today & the producer kept suggesting to use that guitar all day. It's hard to argue with great sounds. All I know is this guitar has a life that I've never experienced in a humbucker guitar. Congratulations,
people go through life never being good at anything. You may be good at other things but I KNOW that you're good at this."

"Hey Jim, Thanks for working so hard on your quest for better tones.. THE BEST! Wagner pickups need to be in every Les Paul made! I told that to my gibson rep he said has not heard of Jim Wagner??? I SAID-- YOU WILL-- YOU WILL." "If you want the real sound of grinding power and meaty bottom end, use any of these pick-ups, I really dig the DarkBursts, but they all ROCK ! "

"I'm thrilled with the tone and responsiveness of my Wagner pickups. Jim winds very musical sounding pickups since he is a guitar player himself, clarity and articulation without harshness - full ,rich, woody tone that really is a joy to behold. Also, Jim is a great guy and always very helpful!"

"I was introduced to Jim Wagner at the LA amp show in 2009 and was a  goner for his tone. I hadn't played a LP style guitar in years and realized that I was missing a big piece of the puzzle. Jim's guitars and pickups are killer!"

"Wagner's SR set in my strat are badass! these musukkas are sweet enough to "woman-tone" and "woody-up" my tone and bring every thing I'm saying with my hands out front and personal. Pedals or no pedals, the "SR-331" set is where it's at."

"I can say that the Iron Man / Godwood combo is by far the best combination of pickups I've ever heard for melodic metal and lead guitar! If you haven't taken the Wagner plunge yet, do it and never look back!"

"Owning a studio in the heart of Los Angeles gives me access to the best of everything in the world of guitar and audio, Wagner's are the best of the best in boutique pickups. I have guitars with; Godwoods, Crossroads, Fillmores and Iron Men pickups in them. All of them have amazing detail and articulation without being sterile. At my studio, 2009 has been the 'Year Of The Godwood'. No guitar has made it on to more records then my 2006 Gibson Les Paul Standard with the American Steele set. That guitar rules the roost and the biggest reason is the Wagner Godwood in the bridge. The Godwood is the ultimate Les Paul pickup, it drive my Marshalls, Boogies, Fenders and Diezels perfectly. Oh yeah it doesn't hurt that Jim's a good guy. Oh also, want to have some real fun, throw a Fillmore in the neck! Incredible!"

"Your pickups have been a critical part in my pursuit of that elusive vintage Fender tone. I've tried other boutique pickups, while they would shine in some areas they lacked in others. Your SR pickups have that perfect balance of depth, woodiness and chime. They also sound REALLY great through a Marshall. I can't wait to acquire a set of your killer humbuckers for my LP. "

"Wager pickups are the biggest, fattest sounding Pups on the market. Wagner pups are all over my new solo album (Slow Motion Hurricane), and will be the main tone on all of my future releases. Do yourself a favor - slap a set of Wagner's in your axe."

"There was a time when i wished to play something that would sound like what i have listened all my life...but then too much things got me confused.. This led me think deeply about my own style and my own sound... This made me filter out everything except my own instinct and the way i feel it.......And Brother Jim and Wagner PICKUPS helped me out in doing so amazingly... "

 "I have the Godwood/Darkburst set in three guitars now and everyone of them sounds fantastic.  Open and organic but still tight and crunchy when I need them to be. The neck pickup roll off is to die for, best lead tone I have ever had for speed picking, arpeggios and slow soulful bends."
