I guess finally I would say if you are looking for an inexpensive pickup that will sound okay. This is the one for you. However, if you are replacing a stock pickup with this one you may want to save your money and just play with the adjustments you have on your stock pickup to see if you can improve its sound.
Installation notes: if you are dropping these into a Les Paul and soldering the pickup leads to the volume knobs be aware that you will NOT have inches of extra wire to play with! I found that both neck and bridge had just enough cord to reach the appropriate terminals on their respective volume pots. The instructions on the included card suggest wiring both pickups to a three-way Les Paul toggle switch and running the output to a volume and tone knob- this is not stock configuration for a Les Paul, where normally the signal path goes from pickup to knobs to switch to output jack. The supplied trim is not molded to a Les Paul curved top, and the trim pieces do NOT come with the four ~.5" length self-tapping screws needed for each corner. Despite not readily fitting the curved top or coming with screws, if you slowly and sequentially tighten the pickup holders down you will find they conform to the Les Paul's curved top and the screw holes match. The trim rings around my pickups are now flush with the top and have not buckled or cracked because the plastic is elastic enough. Go slow and do not over-tighten, or you will strip the Phillips head on your old screws and possibly strip the wood threads on your guitar's body.
Un-boxing note: These pickups are two-wire pickups, so they are not readily split-able like a four wire + ground Seymour Duncan or the like; you just get "hot" and "shield" connections. The pickups I received differ from the Amazon image in that the outer insulator is black, the inner insulator is red or yellow, and the pickup cord is slightly thicker than the one shown. The stripped wire looks to be stranded aluminum for the hot conductor and shield, while the pickup winding is copper. The plastic looks to be the same type that Epiphone used on my '07 Studio LP, so I'm not expecting quality or deformation issues with the pickup trim rings.
but, heck im happy...you can do alot, in programs any wayand with a descent pedal and strings.....not bad tho
