    I like the look, although they are smaller than a regular humbucker on the width edges (I put in some foam to hide the pup cavity). I replaced my original 57's with Wagners Crossroads and now the Alumitones. These are dead quiet and have a greater tone bandwidth, so clearer harmonic top end and great bottom without sounding muddy.

    I put the Crossroads in my Les paul.
    I put GoodWoods in the SG....I am amazed at the SG when amplified....

    I was wondering how those sounded. Do they have enough "guts" for overdriven sounds?
