It gets a really hot tone, with lots of grit and grind that cut the mix
Rio Grande Bluesbar
Sound Perceived output level: HOT, real dang hot. Singe the hairs off a Javelina at 500 yards! Tone: Middly, very gutsy sound. Lots of grind, just the thing to fatten up the bridge on a somewhat thin sounding guitar.
Sonic evaluation: Installed in the Bridge position of a Gibson ES135, replacing the original. Used with classic, non-master volume tube combos, Deluxe Reverb, *real* vintage 59 Bassman. This pickup really screams through the Bassman, it really sounded damn good. Has a great, gut-pounding tone through a nearly dimed Deluxe Reverb. This pickup in the bridge makes a natural mate for the Rio Grande Jazzbar in the neck position.
Overall Rating Comments: I would go with this pickup again. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this pickup a: 9
