I recently got a set of Manlius Fat Diane pickups for my 99 Les Paul Classic and man.... THEY ROCK! These are around 8.0k-ish, but still very articulate and dynamic! A very good and round bottom end, great mids and a slightly restrained top end. This guitar in particular is rather bright and lacks a bit of low end. I had the stock ceramics before, then a Manlius Vinyl/Gibson 57 set (the Vinyl is amazing, but I wanted a more bass response with this guitar - the Gibson had good clarity, but lacked mids). I also installed 500k vol pots, so it helped to open it up a bit, but these pickups got me the PERFECT balance.

IMAG0724 From left to right - R8 with T-Top/Landmark, SG with T-tops and Classic with the Fat Dianes. Full palette of tones! Don't hesitate to buy from Mick. Great customer service too. You won't be disappointed. This is my 3rd or 4th set from him, if it says anything.
