Classic for sure, but still popular for good reason!
Michael12, 10.12.2013
I have this pickup in the bridge and/or neck of three different guitars and I love it in all of them! This is a fantastic pickup!
Firstly, this pickup sounds very "Dimarzio". By that I mean that it has plenty of lower mid thickness with nice upper mid pick attack. It is great for thick chunky rhythm, but is without doubt, the best lead pickup available! This is the pickup that helps Adrian Smith achieve his signature screamy leads.
It is verysensitive to eq adjustments, and also takes on the signature tone of whatever guitar it sits in. It is incredibly rich in harmonics, and both chords and single notes are gorgeously rich!
Another feature of this pickup is versatility. The name is quite misleading. It is hot, but not extremely hot! Nowhere near as hot as a Gibson 500t or a Duncan distortion for example, but still hot enough for playing extreme metal as well as, if not better than any of the other pickups available! Roll back the volume, however, or use low gain, and this thing can do blues really well!
At the moment, this is one of the best pickups I have ever used!

Bright and Crunchy.
Edward5389, 23.04.2014
Installed in the bridge position I love the sound this pup gives. Chords really stand out and are very bright and wide sounding. Turn up the gain and a G or D sounds enormous. Adjusting the height makes a significant difference in sensitivity, so you can adjust it to get the sound that you require. The only issue I has was that I made a mistake, I should have ordered the F spaced variant. With the top and bottom E string out of alignment of the outer poles it does make a difference. When I replaced it with the F spaced version a week later the guitar sounded perfect. Highly recommended pick up.

One of the best all rounders I've ever used on my guitar
27.05.2014
I was very pleased with this pickup. I bought it for my Epiphone Les Paul as I wanted something with a little more bite that the stock pups. It does the job nicely. The sound it gives is loud, punchy and fat on a crunch channel and beautifully warm and smooth on the clean channel. It fits in very well with almost any genre of music and the loud output means you don't need to use all that much gain to get a really good tone for playing heavy metal. Buy it: you will not regret it.

For any passive humbucker fan, there is no better solution, no matter what genre you are looking for.

END OF STORY!
