These pickups are fantastic!! Could not believe how awesome the quack rings out!! Pure vintage tone, Period. Had to wait 7 weeks after ordering to get them.
I put this in the neck of a strat, and it has that beautiful round, warm, but still single coil tone that you want. It replaced my name brand 54 style, which was comparatively bright and brittle. The tone is very responsive to volume pot, and I can get great sustain out of it. Excellent classic strat sound. Unless you are playing very high gain, you will like this.
