TONE. These were exactly what I was looking for. For reference they replaced a Thornbucker set which are fantastic in their own right (and sound great in my Les Paul), but the A5/A4 wasn’t giving me the singing lead tones I was looking for in my PRS 594 Thinline. (Think SG). Harmonically juicy, articulate yet fat in all the right places. They split really well too, in the PRS coil tap you only lose a little low mid and output to bring out more spank and shimmer. Tempted to put these in everything.
1959 Special Humbucker
Great pickup, installed in a LP Standard. More mids and a little more power, not overdone. Highly recommended.
Brought an ES-355 to Life!
Beautifully done pickups and came much faster than I was expecting. Installed them in an Epiphone ES-355 that was muddy and lifeless. These pickups gave it a new life, they sound amazing! So much range in tone. Clarity at low volumes brake up to rock perfectly, great vintage sound.
