I wanted a fat humbucker tone to my single coil strat to add some versatility to my favorite guitar. no HOT single coil can match this pick-up. It is a humbucker, only in a single coil space. Of all the imitators this is the only choice to make because it is truly what you need to drive your sound to the next plateau. Single coil lovers don't bother with it. But if you want no fuss putting this in your axe in a single coil space buy this. It is harmonically rich and tonefull. Sustain is impressive through a "real amp" not a beginner rig. Thats where the difference lies.
