General Your general opinion of this product. This is a perfect, simple, middle of the road pickup. There are better ones, but you'll spend way more, and there are crappier ones, for super cheap, but they aren't nearly as nice. This is kind of like the Goldilocks of pickups. Not too hot, not too cold, but just right. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The pickup itself is real pretty, looks like real wood, sounds a lot like your playing on a factory installed pickup on a nice acoustic. The only thing that worries me is the chord, which is a little fragile, although I could see it lasting a lifetime if taken care of. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? There is one volume control that is very simple and easy to use, just slides back and forth like a fader on a mixer. Sometimes I hit it while I'm strumming and I'll accidentally boost or cut the volume, but I got used to it and don't have a problem anymore. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright and snappy with some full lows and just enough mids, although it can tend to sound a little thin, which can be fixed with the right eq on your amp. Honestly, they sound awesome. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Realistic Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had it about 6 months, but still running strong.
Not bad for what it is

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The pickup itself seems great, the volumen slider is a great feature to have. The cable ends - at the pickup and plug end seem like they won't last. We'll see. Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far it has been great, but I worry about the cable quality as mentioned above. General Your general opinion of this product. Pretty good, I question the reliability though. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? n/a Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Great, I really recomend it as far as tone goes, not as snappy as an active pickup but very. very, good natural tone through my Loud Box mini. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Kinda cheesy screen printed wood grain finish. Looks better than plain plastic I guess. Action How was the action out of the box? sit well enough below the strings.
