Great dynamic pickup

I bought these pickups to replace original equipment in my Ibanez 305.I really liked the neck on this instrument but not so much the sound. I also bought the Aguilar preamp. I was looking to improve the sound and output so it would be closer to my main ax which is a '74 Jazz with EMGs in it. These pickups have a great sound. Its not identical to the EMGs but feels warmer while still maintaining great output and dynamic range. I did buy the preamp after I had used the pickups with the original preamp. They sounded great even then but lacked strength on the higher strings. The preamp just put the sound where I wanted it.The only issue I had was technical (if you could call it that). There are 3 mounting holes in the pickups where as the OE had just 2. I hunted around on the internet and found the tiny screws to finish mounting the pickups.. SW couldn't help me with that but I consider that all minor. Great pickups at a great price.
