First big love to sweetwater for great everything service to shipping. Now it would be really easy to just copy what it is already said because they do exactly what they are advertised to do how refreshing is that. That being said I have owned this great Yamaha rgx520 for about 5 years and played out with just the stock pickups which did a good job for stock humbuckers. I saw these advertised and did the research youtube, Sweetwater and purchased these along with the Seymour Duncan triple shot pickup mounting rings. Which these allowed the pickups to perform to the fullest without drilling holes for toggle switches. So they have been in for 4 days my band loves them, I've written more and they have literally given me a new guitar. They run (the humbucker) hotter than the stock pickups I had no complaints they clean up nice with the volume rolled down and push when I want them to. All variaitions of these where clean and articulate. I will be building a new guitar around these pickups in the future.Also these pickups are great for all styles.
