    I like those Curt Mangans. I can't remember which I have on the I-35lc at this point, because I've tried a bunch on several guitars. Never tried the Thomastiks, personally, but hear nothing but praise. I think I have 11-50s, currently.

    Can't wait for your review and demo of the I-30lc!!!

    To me the neck pick up on the Imperials is very mellow with some chime, when played through may Head Strong, when I play it through my Swart it has a warm tone with a little growl. The bridge pickup retains the chime with a little snap one the Head Strong and on the Swart has a super cool Growl. I have a 50s thin line CS tele, a Nocaster CS, a Tom Anderson Start, a Penguin, a 57 Les Paul CS and a K-Line san Bernardino. The sound from my Collings is what i prefer the most and has become the bar by which my other guitars are measured.

    What about them?
    As mentioned I have them in both my I-35lc and Soco Spruce and really like them. I am a fulltime jazz player, they work great for jazz.
