As I get older I find that I'm hearing more and more subtleties in my guitars. I'm also starting to notice that some of the very popular pickups don't sound all that great to me. For example, for Christmas my wife bought me a second-hand PRS SE Zack Myers guitar that had been upgraded with Gibson Classic '57 pickups. Now, these pickups are legendary, right? But to my ear they sounded muddy and totally 'blah'. I'm not that good a player so I was starting to wonder if I just had a 'tin ear'.
After reading a lot of reviews and listening to scores of sound clips online I took a chance and purchased these SD pickups. They arrived with Amazon's usual speed on a day when I actually had some time to install them. The PRS doesn't have coil splitting but the directions were easy to follow and I quickly had the installation completed. I was proud of my neat soldering and the way I tied-off all the wiring so it looked tidy. I closed everything up, restrung the guitar and plugged it in.
All I can say is .... WOW!!! No muddiness here, my friend! Nice, fat Jazzy tone from the neck and an equally 'hot' tone from the JB on the bridge. This set of pups totally changed the character of the guitar. It's like a different instrument. I love it.
So, if you're on the fence by all means give these pickups a try. You won't be disappointed.
