who's tried it, and what's you're opinion? i got one yesterday with an a5 in it from mcearlock ** i've only had the chance to try it with a5 in my SG faded, into the toneport with headphones. i liked what i heard though, i stacked a ton of distortion into it, and it had great, great, great note definition. with the a5, it's perfect for thrash since it's alot more scooped than a8. in fact, i was able to get some MoP metallica-ish tones from it with this setup. it's also pretty dark sounding, so you can really dial in the treble to get those sharp-but-not-piercing highs for a great scooped sound. it's definitely more of a modern-voiced pickup, and it's great for metal and hard rock. probably won't stay in my SG since i want it to be more of a vintage voiced instrument. i'll probably stick the pickup into either my epiphone SG or my stepdad's squier strat if it's alright with him, it'd definitely kill in that application. anyways, what do you guys think of this pickup?
