Vintage Vibe Pickups

Anyone use these? I just ordered some and my tech told me that they ended his search for vintage-authentic sounding single coils. I got 5% overwound. Here is the site:

I'll report back when I get my guitar. I'm replacing the stock pickups in my G&L Legacy (Strat style).

I put VV pickups to my CIJ Jaguar and didn't bother again to try another pickups for that guitar.

His customer service is also outstanding!.

I had a Thorell FV with a vintage vibe floating pickup and really liked the sound of it.

Thanks for the replies so far, really looking for someones opinion on the Single Coils (and Humbuckers too). I'm glad to hear such positive feedback, and I can confirm that Pete's customer service is top notch, replied to my purchase within 20 minutes!

I have a VV humbucker in my Les Paul. I really like it. I have a VV CC in another guitar. Also good.

Pete made me a humbucker for my Tele Custom. He made it to fit the existing pickup cover. I told him what I was looking for and he hit the nail on the head. Great pickups, great service, great guy. What else do you need?

UPDATE: Ended up loving the VVG Single Coils I put into the G&L Legacy I owned for a little while. Recently I've looking around for SCs to replace the stock pickups in my Fender American Standard Strat. At $71 a piece the VVG pickups are a no brainer. I thought maybe I would try something else but nothing is near the price of the VVG's, and the VVG's absolutely nail vintage strat tone.

I'm going 10% overwound this time, last time I went 5%. I was skeptical of getting overwound pickups because I didn't want any mud or for them to be too dark. It turned out that at 5% overwound they still sounded very much like low-output pickups: bright and chimey highs, piano-like lows. At 10% I'm hoping for a slightly darker sound (to balance with my bright setup) and a little more sizzle/umph on the low-notes. I highly recommend these pickups, very good at any price point, at $71 they are definitely one of the best bang-for-the-buck pickups available.
