Don't look at this pickup if you're looking for smooth tones. This mean boy is all about distorted beauty and aggression. From classic rock to death metal, once you plug your guitar in an amp, you know you're in for a riffing ride!

This pickup is made for high gain sounds but also excels at clean settings. The output is really loud for a passive pickup and will get you a slightly hotter input signal into your amp.

The sound of it is great: It is aggressive yet clear and cuts through in the mix.
The strings are easily distinguishable even at high gain settings.

I have tried this pickup in two different guitars and recorded an example riff with both to see how it sounded in each of them. It seems the pickup definitely imparts its own character on the sound, as the guitars were almost indistinguishable from each other.

I have used this pickup in two guitars. The first was a little unusual: the middle position on a custom hotrod. The sounds was... memorable! But the high output meant anything over half volume or tone was an overkill! So I have moved it to the bridge position of a kit built Strat style guitar. The effect is a very heavy sounding strat! It has a very high bass response and handles drop tuned riffs with ease. So much so that I daren't tune this to standard for fear of wasting it's capabilities. There is no bridge tone control (easier to not bother on an HSS Strat) so volume provides all variation in tone, and in this case it does that very well. Rolling off gives a warm "dirty blues" sound, if you can work out what I mean. Any further tone descriptions are a little pointless given the sound samples both on here and youtube.

Build quality? It's a Seymour Duncan, hand made in the USA, so it's well made.

I would strongly recommend the Invader for it's awesome looks and great sound. I only put 4 stars for sound based on my own opinion (could do with some more mids). I like to have a variety of sounds in my guitars and am very happy to have this in one. Just make sure you put it in the bridge!
