"Vintage sound+ no noise= very happy guitarist"

I don't think I will ever change these pickups since they sound the way I want and they canel all the noise and hum even better than my humbucker guitars
Terrific pickup! It's noiseless and it sounds just like a single coil. I have it in the bridge position along with two Area 58's in the neck and middle. I found keeping the pickups closer to the strings gives the best tonal qualities. They are alnico 2 magnets with reduced pull so they are able to be close to the strings as opposed to more hotter output stacked coils.
Quality built in the USA
Ease of Use
Very easy to install and they sound so much better than the Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's I had in before. The Area's are clearer and brighter and very vintage sounding.
Made in the USA
Worth it though I wish they were a little cheaper...but worth it!
Manufacturer Support
Haven't dealt with them but their instructions were great and the website is very helpful
The Wow Factor
It cancels all the hum and they sound like vintage single coils so I feel spoiled right now.
