Absolutely incredible: perhaps the most versatile bridge pickup I’ve ever encountered. The midrange really nicely fills out an amp and makes the pickup sound so thick, but so clear. Highs are very harmonically rich and detailed, but also very full and smooth-sounding. The low end is tight but has a lot of depth to it, and the pick attack has a really nice compression (or squish) to it while still being really percussive and chunky. These pickups really do highlight the nuances of your playing without being overly sensitive to dynamics. I have them installed in a Schecter Blackjack SLS C-1 with a Hipshot Tone-A-Matic bridge and a 280K volume pot. Also sounds like a hotter P90 in parallel.
