anyone tried these? their the pickups that Dave Kushner uses.

apparently a note has infinate sustain, true?

im thinkin of installing a pair of seymour duncan aph-1's in my custom guitar but dunno whether its worth paying twice as much for a set of these and if so would you suggest both or just one?
Gear:

Gibson lpj
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Epiphone Les Paul 1960's Tribute Plus
Schecter s-1
Marshall JCM900 100WATT HEAD
Fender mustang 1
Dunlop Crybaby
