A friend gave me this set of pickups about 15 years ago out of a brand new Gibson Explorer he got that he put EMGs in, I said sure I'll take them! So they sat for years I didnt have anything to put them in until recently. I decided they should go into my LP knockoff (disclaimer: I did try them both in the bridge position of my Strat briefly several years ago and didnt like them). So I put them in my LP and I was pleasantly surprised! The bridge is hot at 14.7k and so is the neck at 8.5k but let me tell you they both sound fantastic in this guitar! All my other guitars have low gain paf style pickups which I love, this guitar with these pickups is clearly different I dont need any OD pedals at all to get a nice crunch going, and the neck sounds very bluesy and articulate no mud at all. This guitar has 500k pots and bumblebee caps, with these pickups its a really good combination of electronics. Would I want this in all my guitars no, but its different enough and stands out from anything else I have, I highly recommend it.
