Bridge humbucker tones suit the SG perfectly! nice and chimey in the top end, and clarity when ringing out chords.Cutting, but not in an overly icepick to the forehead way. Really enjoyed this pickup, in this guitar. Neck humbucker however falls a bit short when it comes to chord definition and riffing, and exhibits a bit of  ratty/harsh characteristic.  Does an ok job for single notes/bends. I feel this lets down the overall sound when both humbuckers are selected. Noted – No microphonics or undesirable squealing present in either humbucker pickups.

Demo (aquired the guitar used, has not been setup and restrung)
