So when I bought my lovely MTD Heir, the original owner had swapped out an EMG pup for this one a single-coil J-style pup. I have no idea how it sounds, as I'm content with the EMG. However, the other pup on the MTD is great, so I suspect this one's no slouch either. If you've got a project going on, this might be just what you're looking for. I hope so, anyway! $15.00 shipped CONUS.
