Sound — 10
(Pickups installed in a medium price range Ibanez RG) This pickup is high output. Actually Incredibly high out put. I ran this through my amp with no pedals at all and I had to decrease the gain on my amp to almost 0 (Depending on how you wire it).
Overall Impression — 9
Pros: This pickup has a huge sound. It can really make your riffs scream. You can take a cheaper guitar sound fuller bigger and better. Cons: If you don't have experience in wiring guitars it maybe difficult to install correctly with out getting ground noise. If not grounded properly you get an overbearing buzz that can ruin your sound.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I've had them installed for almost a year self installed. I don't get any creaks or squawks or crackles from it. I played these pickups A LOT my old pickups I had in this guitar (Ibanez infinity) had rusted in a year. I honestly haven't took very good care of these pickups and there's not rust or wear.
