Sure, your stock Asher Electro Hawaiian® Junior lap steel sounds great – so why upgrade? Bill Asher chose the components of the upgrade kit as a nice alternative for those wanting to make their steel a bit more road-worthy. Improvement in overall tone quality, sustain, and smoother volume and tone taper can be expected, which makes it great for loud stage volumes or in the studio.
“The Lollar Imperials are not as hot as the stock pickups – this offers more headroom and clean harmonics. The neck pickup stays clearer - not too dark. The tone of these pickups are quite exceptional,” says Bill Asher.
The upgrade kit includes 2 Jason Lollar Imperial Humbuckers, 2 USA CTS pots, Oil Paper .022 capacitor and installation instructions*. (An Asher technician can install the upgrade; however, an Electro Hawaiian® Junior lap steel must also be purchased in the same order.)
*Should be performed by a qualified guitar technician. Will void any current warranty on these parts if not performed by Asher Guitars.
