Fake Wilkinson pickups.

Been seeing a lot of posts around the web regarding fake Wilkinson pickups being fitted to some guitars, namely Harley Benton guitars.  Seems the factory was being palmed off with these fake pickups by the suppliers.

Now noticed that Harley Benton guitars now come with Roswell pickups in place of the Wilkinson one's although some or most of the other hardware is still Wilkinson.

That said, Harley Benton still seem to be putting out some cracking guitars, at great prices.

Some info, and a sneak peak at the new range of HB guitars.

Thanks for sharing that information! It's unfortunate to hear about the issue with fake Wilkinson pickups, but it's good to know that Harley Benton has taken steps to address it by switching to Roswell pickups.
