I like humbuckers that are bright and "spitty" if that makes any sense. I like them to be the oppiste of too smooth; I like being able to get some harsh highs if I want it, and all the microphonic clicks and clangs just make it sound richer.
This guy has the right idea:
I have a set, but they deserve to be in a better guitar...
When you say 7k, do you mean with AWG42?
