Anyone try these? How do they compare with stock Gibson pickups; 498's, burstbuckers, 57's? I was checking them out on-line the other day and they aren't that expensive comparatively.
They are meant to be slightly hotter than a typical PAF humbucker; about on a par with the Burstbucker, I suppose. Slash has a real thing for 1950's spec Les Pauls, so his signature pickups are going to be in that vein.
They're supposed to be a slightly hotter version of the Alnico Pro II which is kind of like the 57 Classic.
What are you looking for exactly?
Just curious really. Strongly considering buying an agile or epi and know I'll probably want to change out the pickups. I know the epi pickups are notorious bad but haven't tried the agile anico V's.
Actually I thought I read the latest ones are pretty good (the epi pickups I mean).
I have the slash set in my Carvin CS6. They sound great to me. They sound good through my Mesa 5/25 Express.
