On Fire!

I've got this pickup on a handmade lap steel combined with a Wampler modded Ibanez DS7 and Classic Crybaby. Holy Mother of all things heavy! Total clarity, sustain, chunk, and richness on the bottom. The mids cut through like a newly sharpened Samurai sword, and the highs scream like a banshee from hell. It is very powerful and very high output. Amazingly it is crystal clear and fat with a clean amp, and reacts very nicely to pick attack. Highly suggested to those looking to go BIG and FAT and have the need to SCREAM!

Savage pickup!

I love this pickup, it absolutely screams! I've got mine paired up with the Seymour Duncan Alpha in the neck position and I am just in love with the sounds I am getting.
Music background: I have been teaching myself guitar for about 6 years and have been a vocalist for 8.

Pop Punk

A perfect pickup for pop punk aka blink 182, green day, new found glory.


I put this thing at the bridge of my Fender, modern player telecaster+, and couldn't be happier with the out come. I play music all over the rock spectrum, and this pickup handles anything you throw at it, and looks killer doing it. Go ahead, just buy it.
Music background: country, punk, metal
