I have this pickup in the bridge and/or neck of three different guitars and I love it in all of them! This is a fantastic pickup!
Firstly, this pickup sounds very "Dimarzio". By that I mean that it has plenty of lower mid thickness with nice upper mid pick attack. It is great for thick chunky rhythm, but is without doubt, the best lead pickup available! This is the pickup that helps Adrian Smith achieve his signature screamy leads.
It is verysensitive to eq adjustments, and also takes on the signature tone of whatever guitar it sits in. It is incredibly rich in harmonics, and both chords and single notes are gorgeously rich!
Another feature of this pickup is versatility. The name is quite misleading. It is hot, but not extremely hot! Nowhere near as hot as a Gibson 500t or a Duncan distortion for example, but still hot enough for playing extreme metal as well as, if not better than any of the other pickups available! Roll back the volume, however, or use low gain, and this thing can do blues really well!
At the moment, this is one of the best pickups I have ever used!
