    Well I finally got around to installing these in my number one gigging strat. I must say for 60 bucks they are a huge surprise. I have 4 strats all with good pups..Fender Custom Shop..Bare Knuckles..Stock Japan Alnico's...and these sound just as good if not better in some regards...the 2 and 4 spots are really strong with a lot of quack that's hard to find in a lot of Strat pups....they usually lose volume...not these. the bridge is 7.1 K...the middle is 6.4 and neck 6.0..they have nice chime with a fat woody tone to them. For any price they hold up to the boutique pups. build quality is top notch...a lot lead wire. I would highly recommend these to anyone wanting some great Strat pickups and don't want to fork out 150.00. Just my quick review...I gig Thursday if they sound like they do at home its going to be good...side note...the neck alone nails that early JLV "Full time Lover" tone to the tee...better than my Bare Knuckles that are more geared towards Surf. These replaced a set of Fat 50s .....for now....more to come.
