Sound — 10
When I first got this pickup I was praying that it would sound worth the cash I saved up for it and it pleased me to no end I installed it on my PRS SE Singlecut and plugged it into my Marshall Valvestate 2000 amp I set it up with my usual tonal set up of: 10 Gain 8 Bass 5 Middle 10 Treble I was shocked at the shear crunch it gave me it was a huge step up from the korean stock pups and it was a good one it was really loud and really dirty on the ton but I loved it and if I switched to the clean channel although it was still quite dirty it was good cause it gave that nice classic rock tone I love. Its definitely a balanced pickup that gives off really clear notes and supplies my valuable tone.
Overall Impression — 10
I originally bought this pickup based upon its unique look and because everyone told me this was THE distortion pickup now im writing this after about having it a year so I can be sure of it. I love the looks for a start it just looked nice to have a pup that didn't just look like all the others I see on the shelf I wanted different so I bought it and the guitar i equiped with it is my PRS SE Singlecut in the bridge great pickup and I would no doubt get one for any other guitar I would get.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I have no doubt this pickup will outlast even the guitar its in and I will continue using invaders in any guitar I acqire. I've gigged it time and time again no cut outs no issues whatsoever and everytime someone asks me to play a guitar with standard pups i tend to get upset when the crunch dont reach my sweet spot.
