    Just hoping someone could point out the differences between these pickups. I know some differences like there are different types of magnets in all 3 and the MFD "pole pieces" aren't really magnets but the ceramic bar helps produce the magnization of the pickup, whereas the Chisonics and the darkstars have pole pieces that are
    magnetized and a magnetized bar attached to them. I also know the DS is a single coil and I know the MFD's and CS's come as both humbuckers and single coils. So basically I was wondering if anyone can point out the sonic differences in terms of the low end, mid range and treble or highs.
    And if there were any differences that may not be obvious or known

    I forgot the "vs" between Darkstars and Lakland Chisonics
