A great classic
Anatoly, 20.03.2019
This pickup set was recommended to me by a friend, who basically said "if you don't know what to install, install these" (i was looking to upgrade muffled-sounding stock pickups). They are basically a classic combination, and it's for a good reason - these are perfectly matched and sound awesome in your average single-cut guitar.

Just about the only thing that i can complain about is that they're a bit too big to fit in the pickup cavities of my Asian-made LP copy, so i'll have to drill those off to make more room at some point.

The "hot rodded" thing is perhaps a misnomer in this day and age since these aren't actually all that hot - compared to modern "hot" pickups these are quite polite. However, they have just enough bite and clarity to rock on all but perhaps extreme levels of distortion, but the neck pickup also has great clean sounds.

The archetypal sound
Jay Double A, 26.04.2017
So I fitted these on an old Fenix LP clone I was giving a make over... Here's what I found:

Installation:
The pickups were easy enough to install, save for the thickness of the wire shielding. It required a little ingenuity to pull them through the routing - they were too thick to simply push through. But we got there in the end, and this is only a one time issue - once it's done, it's done.

Sound:
Obviously, this is the main one. We went from a generic humbucker sound, to a massive and rich sound, with real character. When playing through a medium/high gain, it just sounded great.
The bridge (JB) has a lot of bite, but dialling back the volume gives a crunch that doesn't hide the fact there is a lot in reserve.
The neck (jazz) was rich, warm, round - a perfect lead sound. Rolling back the volume and it started sounding deliciously bluesy.

Overall:
These pickups have given an old guitar a whole new lease of life. If you want a sound that can go from rock to metal with a twist of the volume control, then you could do a lot worse than this set.

Epiphone les paul upgrade
Zambo, 22.01.2019
I have an epiphone les paul standard and I upgraded it with these pickups. Now it sounds like an expensive guitar.

I own a fender std mexican strat and a fender tele AM pro too, but the best sound I reach with my lovely blues junior 15W is with my upgraded les paul, it just sounds like what I wanted, if you think to hot rodded humbucker sound, go ahead to these. They are just amazing.

I don't think you will need to upgrade your gibson with these, but if you (like me) own an epiphone, just do it, you wont have regrets, that's sure !!

Perfect for covering a wide range of styles
03.03.2014
My favorite pickup of the pair is the Jazz neck pickup, it sounds incredible and is one of my favorite humbuckers ever. As you would expect from Seymour Duncan the quality is as good as anything else even pickups costing 2 or 3 times as much. I found the pair to be perfect for covering a lot of styles which is great when doing a good mix of both live and studio work. I used these in a US made PRS Starla and they generally blended really well with it though I personally think that they would be better suited to something with a maple cap like a Les Paul. The Jeff Beck signature bridge pickup is generally great it has a really distinct mid range spike which means that it really cuts through mix well though when used with something like a tubescreamer (I was using a Maxon OD9) it can get a bit too much and become a little muddy, I used them with a Fulltone OCD and that seemed to work exceptionally with it! Generally though really impressed and would recommend if your after a versatile set of pickups to cover everything from Jazz to Hard Rock!
