They have the coolest names, are supposed to sound VERY good, but very expensive.

I know a guy that bought a set of the Bareknuckle Miracle Man pickups for 250$, he says they sound like a mix between a SD Dimebucker, and Dimarzio Super Distortion. He said they retain clarity while playing fast on the low strings with distortion, in that the notes don't "mush" together; but still doesn't scoop the mids. And has a nasty riffing sound(nasty as in awesome smile.gif).
Sounds very tempting, but they are very expensive.

I have a matched set of Jason Lollar's Imperial Humbuckers in my Gibson LP. They are great, a real airy sound, and really come alive once I crank the gain up. But they're expensive, $150 a pickup.

I bought a set of these guitarhead neo vintage humbuckers in white for a white epi 335 that I bought on ebay (wanted to make sure I liked the hollowbody before I spent alot of money on one)
and then put all new electronics and had the frets filed, crowned and polished and then intonated. man does this epiphone scream. no need to buy anything else.

this is a keeper now that I stuffed the f holes with cotton to help with the feedback from the high output pickups plus you can hear them before you buy them

great pickups dirt cheap
when I asked them why they are so cheap. they told me I could go buy a duncan so I can pay for the name or buy a pickup that is built just as well for a 1/4 of the price
Hmm, All I know is that these pickups scream in my guitar
