De-fenderize your Strat! Fat punch with sparks at high gain.
nomasforfun, 23.01.2020
Placed it on the neck and middle position in my Strat and that's not a Fender any more. It might sound a bit dark at first, but it has a clean low end punch and with gain it gets to a very different level as the sound cranks and sparkles with mid-range harmonics. A single coil that sonically has little to do with single coils.
Perhaps the only issue is that the pickup housing is slightly smaller for a standard single coil pick guard hole. I just had to use springs rather than the small rubber tubes to get these stabilized.

Great!
AndersE, 16.01.2014
I use this pickup in the neck position on my Tokai ast-50 strat (dimarzio hs4 middle, Seymour Duncan YJM fury bridge). It has an very full and clear tone to it. No muddyness as you would maybe think with the quarter pounders. It is very loud so I had to adjust it a bit lower than the other pickups so they would match the other two pickups better. It suits many styles from nice clean soul jazz and blues to distorted mayhem. The neck position is the one I found I tend to use the most on this guitar. All because of this good sounding pickup.

Duncan QP
Lars-Erik S., 25.10.2013
Great sound but a somewhat odd size. Had to adjust the pickguard. Therefore a fairly low rating.

Quarter pounder power
13.12.2016
Cleaned and boosted the sound of my old Korean Squier with a set of quarter pounders. Not an evident choice and requiring now pots and a switch...no regrets. Finally the tone knobs and the volume have a function on this guitar.
