My first encounter with Entwistle Pickups was through some friends with GAS aquiring some Revelation Guitars.

When it came time for another partscaster build,  a GFS tele body, which was subject to routing modification to accomodate a Deluxe style layout, i was straight onto the Entwistle website http://www.entwistlepickups.com/pickup.php

The specifications of the Nemesis AFG piqued my interest and a decision was made, but unfortunately, due to  misjudgement (blaming the use of a smartphone with glaring sunlight) placed an order for the Non AFG NEMESIS model, which is now the subject of this  review.

I wired this up so the 2 coils could be in series or parallel configuration. Wiring it up as a split (only one coil) was also quite nice, but in my opinion, the series/parallel option brings out the most of this mix pole design, providing some complex harmonics on clean settings, and some restraint + clarity on higher gain settings.

The Nemesis main strenght lies in the midrange voicing.  Not overly hyped or in honky territory, but fat and punchy. Complimented by tight lows and a nice aggressive top end, the Nemesis is perfectly suited for styles of Harder Rock and Heavier Music.

<EDIT> Also installed in a Jackson DInky with similiar results.
