I just want to shout out on this pickup set. I was shocked at how authentically stratty these pickups sound! At the same time these pickups blew me away in all of these areas: 1. No noise! I have never heard such a real, open, yet warm pure single coil tone be this silent before. Dummy coil psuedo pickups always have something missing. 2. Amazing sustain. It is almost as if there is built compression without the squash. The strings ring for days. 3. No stratitus. The pickups are so clear, but never strident. 4. Each position is the same in volume, yet you are one tone pot pull away from an awesome Texas Blues boost. It seems like you cannot find any reviews on this product, and the corksniffers and vintage crowd would die Before trying an active pickup from Fishman, but these are insanely good.
