    I'm curious to hear a testimony on these, I'm considering a custom-spaced MM5.2, and also looking at the Villex offerings.

    Thanks for any insight/info/comparisons, etc.

    I dropped a Nordy MM4.2 in a Fernandes Atlas 4. The difference between it and the stock pup was night and day. That was a while back. I haven't played it in several months and I made the swap several months before that. I think I wired it single coil/series/parallel. I have no experience with Villex, but I would not hesitate to go with Nordy again.

    Nordys are top notch pickups. Obviously I am biased as to which Jazz or P pickups I prefer, but no one makes a better MM or soapbar than Nordstrand, IMO.
  4. I replaced the pickup in my olpmm3 with a nordy, and the difference in tone is significant. I love it.

    Alright, I think I'm getting a pattern here...
  6. Is this pickup suitable for a purely passive setup, without a preamp?
