For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

I put one of these in a used Les Paul I bought a while back. The previous owner had replaced the original pickups & they didn't do it for me. This gave me some power & clarity & the tone I wanted from a Les Paul--with some extra sting. They're basically a JB with a stronger agent--and they sound similar. For classic rock, hard rock & stuff like that they work great, and they have a nice edge for blues as well.

I have the set in one of my guitars and these pick ups are really underrated in the line of Duncans. Amazing clarity and great cleans considering they are ?distortion? pickups. Very warm lows and great mid range not muddy at all. Overdriven/Distorted is where these really shine every note chimes, leads sear, power chords are chunky!
