Rob's suggestion on the Wilde noisefrees is also pretty good. I have an L298-TL as the bridge pickup in the guitar you see to your left there (as well as an L610, which is also pretty quiet). Are they quieter than the Micros? I don't know, possibly, but the Micros are still pretty darn quiet as Derek pointed out. Both are killer designs, not sure you could call either one a bad choice. Seconding TPMs comment about Rob recommending Bill's pickups. Class act all the way, Rob.
