    These are highly rated. Anyone have them? Are they worth $145 each?

    What do you like about them?

    I might put one in the bridge of my new strat!!:dude

    These are hands down my favorite PU. They sound amazing in every guitar I put them in. They have a really nice harmonic overtone sound that is really smooth.

    i had both DBs and GWs, though i sold the git w/ the dbs
    amazing pups, very versitile do classic rock and blues to cleans no problem
    i would say sig. less aggressive than GWs
    just twist the volume knob simple as that for your tones
    i have never heard anyone regretting buying crcoils

    I have been using them for about 4 or 5 years. The only pickup that I have heard that I think sounded better was a Goodwood. They really aren't any more expensive than any other decent pickup. Get what you pay for.

    I put a Crossroads neck and a Darkburst Bridge in my R9 - done. Terrific PAF tones. My pickup search ended with that combo.
