The reviews I read before trying the '57 Classic-plus all indicated that this pickup sounded SMOOTH (and even quite 'fat'). I can't say I agree. It sounds great for thrashing, but for legato solo'ing it's way too zingy/edgy for my tastes, and not at all 'fat'. Rolling off the treble control helps a bit, but if I could roll back the clock, I wouldn't have chosen this pickup as it's a fair bit more expensive than an equivalent Seymour Duncan. Also, for a pickup that's billed as medium-high output it's got very little extra oomph than the regular '57-classic, if any at all. For the money, I'm disappointed.

Great Classic Humbucker!

I installed this humbucker over 3 years ago in my SG and the sound is just amazing. It achieved all the classic tones that i was hoping for. I do mainly rock and doom style music and for that purpose it served wonderful but it doesn't stop there. Considering it's versatility,i think it does any classic tones you want it to achieve, clean and distorted.
