"Great if you want to sound like Zak Wylde."
I no longer have a use for these pickups. I play in a 50's, 60's, 70's and sometimes 80's cover band and these pickups are not usefull for any of these types of music.
They are only usefull with a high gain setting. Clean sounds are blocky, clunky and not usefull unless lots of chorus, delay, reverbs etc are used. Lets just say these pickups were not made to bring out the resonance of the wood the guitar is made of.
No features other than they make your Les Paul sound like Zak Wylde. If that is what you want, it is what you will get.
Ease of Use
Easy to install.
USA made great quality product. Solid. I have 2 sets of them loaded into a Les Paul and an SG. The SG was a very tight fit and you have to be carefull installing them in it. Not much room for the battery.
Sure, at the time I wanted the Zak sound and for the price, it was cheaper than buying Zak's Marshalls. haha
The Wow Factor
They look good, especially in my SG. You can see other guitar players eyes light up when you pull your guitars out of the case and they see the pickups. So they must look pretty cool.
They were practical at the time I bought them.
