General Your general opinion of this product. Nice product. The only disappointment was that it was not a 5-pin quick connect. That was my fault for not asking. I wish Gibson would specify if it is a 2-pin, 3-pin or 5-pin. I know they say 2-conductor and 4-conductor, which you can know then that it-s a 2 or 5-pin connector, but the 3-pin, you have no idea. I had to cut the 2-pin connector off and solder the wire to my pot. My guitar has a 5-pin harness for the pickups. At least i didn't have to modify the Angus. Next time I know to check. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes. It's made well and is a Gibson. 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? A little darker than I was hoping. I was hoping for a good smooth tone, but seems a little darker than anticipated. It adds a great "chunk" when on a gain channel and mixes well with the Angus pup I have in the bridge. I didn't try this out in the Bridge position, but I'm sure that'll brighten it up a little. All in all though, the tone is good. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Chrome. Nice packaging and no scratches Reliability How has it stood up over time? We'll see, but I'm sure it'll last a long time
