Hi, guys! I`ve installed this pickup into my swamp ash/maple neck tele yesterday and now i can say this is one of the best tele bridge pickups! 1. It cures superb-higs problem: tone full open = TWANG, tone near halfway down = sweet sound without harsh icepick and keep the sound structure normal (not muddy). SD Broadcaster, Dimarzio Twang King, Dimarzio Pre-b1 were installed there previously, but they didn`t had that sweet spot on tone control (controls are 250K CTS, and there are 0,047 uf and 0,022 uf caps via push-pull on tone control). 2. The sound is really LOUD, and it is very dynamic and sensitive to picking nuances. 3. Bass/middle/treble are very proportional and you can hear every string sounds. 4. On different gain levels it sounds quite right: from sweet bakersfield sound to light crunch to rock to hard`n`heavy - this is really cool. What more to say? Oh, you can play country - this pu got lots a twang, clarity and high-end snap on clean sound, or play rock - it got lotsa balls when distorted!!! True versatile tele pickup. Best of today`s Dimarzio line, IMO.
