Sound: I'm not so sure on the output but it's relatively reasonable, I'm using it on a MIM Strat and it sounds killer in the neck and middle positions. It has a very well rounded tone suitable for any type of music that sounds better with single coils. The tone is great heavily distorted or clean and overdriven. They make silvers for all type of positions so pick the right one for the right slot you need to fill. Just remember they aren't completely noiseless but pretty darn close. // 9

Reliability & Durability: Both pickups are completely solid even though I purchased them used. The casing on them is solid plastic, some very durable stuff and it does look pretty cool on a guitar. I feel I can depend on these pups for the rest of my life, I've had no problems yet and there is very little noise. Reliability & Durability gets a 10. // 10

Overall Impression: I love the noise reduction and great tone these pickups offer, they are relatively cheap used (which doesn't mean they aren't amazing) and run you about 40 bucks a pop I guess. They sound great in my strat and are suitable for any single coil application. Check out the entire Lace single coil line, there might be a different option better for your needs, but the silvers suit mine. // 10
