Very happy to say the least. Love this pickup in my SG.
I highly recommend this pickup, especially if you're going for that Angus sound. Also sounds fantastic for blues. These are really hot and they definitely scream. This pickup also sounds really good with the classic 57 humbucker on the neck. One of the biggest differences I noticed was the sustain on this pickup. I had the standard 490 and difference in sustain is night and day. Really transformed the sound of my SG. 2 thumbs up...
This humbucker completely changed the way my '61 Re-Issue SG sounds. With this pickup installed in the bridge you will get the tone AC/DC is known for, and if you're as big a fan as I am, you won't be disappointed. Trust Me!
These pickups will give you the ripping tone of Angus Young, you don't need a Marshall amp you can just use a 10 watt and it still rips through anything. These give you a variety of sounds From Highway to Hell-Back in Black- Let There Be Rock- and Problem Child and It a Long Way To The Top. I recommend a SG though which will make it unbeatable.
This pickup was MADE to be put into an SG-styled guitar & cranked through a Marshall, period. And trust me, doing so will give you THE "Angus" tone every time. Sounds good through ANY rig I've put it through, honestly (even makes my Marshall solid-state sound just right), and is perfectly voiced for those gigantic ringing chords & edgy lead licks AC/DC are famous for. Back off the tone control & get awesome Paul Kossoff sounds too!!! My ONLY complaint is you can't get one in CHROME (which stands up to use better than nickel). If you have an SG & want those trademark Angus sounds, you can't go wrong here!
