Versatile Sound

I bought a pair of these years ago and they have lived in several different guitars. I took one of them out and de-soldered the cover off of it. I installed it in a junk guitar I had pieced together with random (but quality) parts. I put the pickup in the bridge position where it would be bright and crunchy. It sounds AMAZING. Plenty of crunch and grit when gained up yet can be sweet and clean when needed. Excellent pickup!

'57s are super expressive

I have '57 and '57 plus combo in my LP - they are super expressive and respond to how you attack the strings. There are plenty of great sounding pups out there, and these sound fantastic of course as other reviewers have stated, but these are the ones that let me express myself the most in my playing.

Exceptionally Warm Tone

If you are looking for warmth I would recommend you check out this pickup. I upgraded the pickups on my Epiphone Sheridan II several years ago with this and the '57 Classic Plus and I couldn't be happier. Not recommended if you are playing heavier music, hard rock or metal but if you are playing rock, Blues, or Jazz you couldn't spend your money on a better pickup.
