Good classic tone
I installed this on an Ibanez hollowbody to replace the stock pickups. The stock pickups were weak and lacked the warmth I was looking for in a "jazz box". With the '57 Classic I am now able to get good jazzy tones out of my guitar. At first the sound was brighter than what I wanted, but after a couple of tweaks with the volume and tone controls I was able to get a balanced warm tone.
