I bought a set of these to upgrade the factory pick-ups in my '95 Epiphone MiK LP Standard. Only reason I didn't rate a 5 is that I can't say it "blew me away" I really like the sound, crisp but warm, not to trebly and not to muddy. It did not however magically turn me into Jimmy Page, although my Black Dog and Heartbreaker are a little closer now. I installed with 50s JP wiring with 4 push/pulls, and .022 vitamin Q caps and it's great fun. I would definitely recommend these to anybody chasing the tone. SWEETWATER CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EXCELLENT.
