i,ve been using these pickups for about twelve years and in my opinion, have a beautiful warm tone that heralds back to the 60's. The quick connect system makes customisation simple with no soldering needed. The early generation of this pickup didn't have the quick connect system but again was relatively simple to make the mods to the wiring loom. Next plan is to convert the old wiring over to the EMG BTS. The only issue I can see is the instructions are not clear enough for novices, but with a little rationalising its a doddle.
Purchased this pickup to use in a hand constructed fretless bass. All the parts come with the pickup for a relatively easy installation, although the inclusion of springs or similar to push the pickup upwards would be helpful for those not replacing a pickup.
In terms of sound quality, it is exactly what I was looking for. The sound is warm yet defined, but even on a fretless responds with some power when the gain goes up. Harmonics are nice and clear, and the whole sound is never muddy. Definitely recommended for those who want a slightly more modern fretless sound.
