Great pickup. These are as good as or better than my Bare Knuckle Pickups, at half the price. I'm quite impressed. It gave me the percussive attack I was looking for in my metal rhythm tone. Plenty of paf-like openness and dynamic responsiveness. There's a certain scratchy, earthy sound that happens at the pick attack that I dont remember being there before. I like it. Gives each note character and a bit of snarl.
Excellent vintage style pickup!
I have been on a 13 year quest for the right pickup for my Epiphone SG, I've tried p90's, and multiple flavors of PAF style pickups that were overwound to varying degrees. I decided that maybe I have been looking at things wrong and needed to go for something more vintage wound and the folks here at Planet Tone recommended the Legacy HB for the kind of music (AC/DC & Hard Rock) that I use my SG for. They were so right, the muddiness was gone, replaced by lots of dynamics and clarity with a crisp but not lacking in bass low end. I will likely replace the neck pickup with a Legacy HB at some point as well. Great job, Planet Tone!
