    I actually have one of these (the pickups, not that fancy/crazy guitar).

    I honestly am very impressed by it all.

    It's easy to install, and it sounds very good. It's not flawless, in my opinion, but it does track very well. I dunno if I'd necessarily use it were I recording, but live? Holy smokes man, watch out. It adds a whole new level to my playing.

    Before, I've tried octave pedals and various other A/B switches, but the coolest thing about A Little Thunder (to me, at least) is the ability to only double the lower 2 (or 3) strings. It really lets you do some neat things.

    I've got it in a cheap Squier, re-painted and dubbed The Thundercaster.

    Not the cheapest pickup, but bang for the buck? Totally worth every penny. Because ultimately it's not JUST a pickup, but an effect as well.

    PLUS I've gotten a chance to talk to the owner & founder of the company a few times. Really down to earth guy who's probably more concerned with making the pickup work for the player than simply selling a bunch of them... very refreshing in this day and age.

    Definitely has my interest. I fool with an octave pedal, which does some really cool things, but this seems different. Would like to try one.
