"Best sounding pickups I’ve ever heard"

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have many of the “best sounding” pickups in all (40+) my guitars ranging from strats to lp’s to tele’s to jazzmasters, and numerous top sounding and costly pickups in all. These pickups in this Ibanez Trump them ALL, ten fold. I have never played or heard better sounding pickups in my entire life - the fact they can switch from humbucker to single coil sounds with the floor a switch is simply the cherry on top of the icing on top of the cake. All the specs are spot on and the description provided is not fluff - in fact, they’re understating them if anything. If I could only keep one of my prized (40+) guitars on sound and features alone, this would be the ONE. BUY IT!!!
