These are truly first class pickups, don't let the price fool you! unbelievable tone and clarity, top quality components!
I replaced some strat pickups that said fender custom shop in a really comfortable relic guitar I picked up for pennies. The minute I plucked the first string it sounded like Stevie Ray Vaughns strat. It sounds like an old bluesmans voice. Deep and guttural. The sound is compressed and still bright. This is now my favorite guitar and the whole thing cost me 400 bucks with the pickups.
Good purchase, the tone is as advertised, bright and punchy.
