Great investment for a cheap guitar
Sisa, 31.12.2017
Bought this Pickup Set around 5 years ago for my Bullet strat (cheapest squier there is) and it transformed a nice playable guitar with mediocre pickups at best into a great guitar with awesome sound.

Versatility showed when i switched bands from a Rock band to Black metal and then even to an old school Death metal band. The only thing that changed was the tunning and the string thickness. On the E standard an D tunning humbucker gives a clear rich sound, and when you drop the tunning to B its just a insane greasy sound, which is probably not for everyone but it was music to ears for me. The only thing I did on the B tunning was to shut the Tone Knob completely and it gave just enough treble to make things work.

The humbucker has a rich gainy sound with much to play with, but i didn't like it too much on clean. On the contrary the single coils don't like distortion much but they begin to shine once you witch to a clean or crunch channel.

The assembly is extremely easy, all the cables have connectors so no soldering is required.
Modifications on the guitar (Bullet strat) I needed to do:
- Hole for the Battery
- Wider hole for the cables that lead to the input
- Deeper hole for the Switch which is bigger by a margin compared to the stock one

Other big plus with this pickup set its very easy to switch guitars. It took me less than 30min to move it from bullet to my affinity squier (only body modification is wider hole for the cable of the input and fore the battery, hole under the switch is just enough deep). Didn't even need to remove the strings. Again the improvement was insane

Fantastic sound and very versatile
Mick M., 29.10.2020
I like the little extra juice that comes of from the single coils so they match better with the nicely sounding humbucker in the bridge position. Nice pick guard too. Perfect fit on strats. Highly recommended upgrade particularly for those having to play night after night playing many different styles.

nice upgrade for the sound an look of your strat type guitar
EMRT, 08.10.2020
this product is great for easy installation and good look.
The guitar i applied this was a cort G model (not a strat)
The pick ups and cables fitted perfectly. (SC/SC/HB)
However i had to carve the jack plate and knob caves of my guitar to fit it. Pickup guard i just did not use it on this guitar. For its holes were placed differently and its size was a bit bigger than my guitar face.
Overall im still happy with it. Easy upgrade.
As for the sound , liked the the neck and bridge positions which are my favorite pick up positions i switch on any guitar.
You may get Bluesy and strong Rock sound easy.
