Wow! I have to say this pickup exceeded all of my expectations. It was replacing the stock Mexican ceramic number (which isn’t really bad). I wanted something with a little more grunt but not a super hot blurry mess with a dark huge midrange. Well I have to say this is easily one of the most BALANCED pickups I’ve ever heard. Every single frequency is “in line”. If it makes any sense it sounds like a recording in a way. Not artificial, but like the tone has been perfectly burnished. The slap tone is dripping with a stanky 70’s vibe and finger style both cuts and supports. This is a million miles away from the typical “hot” pickup. It’s like the perfect P tone in a bottle. Just a tiny bit pokey and certainly not overdone. Response from the volume and tone knobs is fantastic as well. Absolutely pleased to no end!
