Best to spend a bit more and get something better

tomtomssi, 14.02.2018
I would advise you to avoid this one, spend a bit more and get a quality humbucker.

I bought this for my project guitar just to see what a 25e humbucker is. Well, you get what you pay for.

The package contains the humbucker, a plastic mount, two screws and springs. No wiring diagram included. Properly packaged in bubble wrap. A plastic sheet on top of the humbuckers as a cover.

The humbucker has three wires: white, blue and bare. The quality of these wires is pretty horrendous. You can literally pull them apart with your fingers. The white and red wires are both just 4 strains of thin wire enclosed in a standard plastic tube. You can see that the build quality is cheap and soldering these was a pain.

I decided to desolder this as I don't really want this on my guitar next to the beautiful Seymour Duncan SSL-1's I bought earlier.

I would advise you to spend a bit more and get a proper humbucker. You'll be glad you did.

I'm impressed!!! Again!!!

15.12.2016
Bought this humbucker for a guitar i made so i can't compare with different pickups on the same guitar. All i know is that the second the first note came out of my guitar, it would stay within my arms for a long long time! Nice clear sound if you like it clean and grungy sound if you pump it up. I am not a pro and dont have extensive knowledge but frankly it sounds real good. Didn't try on stage yet but i am sure it's perfect like any other good guitar. You guys can take it eyes closed! And enjoy!!
