BBQ Tron : Gretsch style custom replacement guitar pickup

5.0 1
BBQ Tron blaze
Installed this on a Godin, all mahogany guitar, Les Paul Jr. styling, and basically, it far, far blows away any other pickup I've had in the guitar.  Exactly as advertised, "Not a distortion pickup, just more muscle" and I mean a lot more.  No thin tones here.  Very different tonality than a run-of-the-mill Filtertron pickup.  So, if you're looking for  Filtertron replacement to sound like two other high-end pickup winders I can think of (sparkle/jangle stuff), this isn't the pickup for you.  On the other hand, if you want something that can blow your balls off at 50 paces and get about the fattest tone you're likely to hear on upper register notes, this is definitely the pickup for you.  That said, I did find it a bit more sensitive to string height than some other pickups, namely closer to the strings sounded better.  Also, resistance wind was an issue.  Had two, one wound for about 12.3k and the other wound hotter at about 13.5.  I found the 12.3k to sound more articulate with none of the 'blur' I occasionally found with the 13.5k.  Overall, just a killer, killer pickup.
