Great sounding pup!

Your general opinion of this product.
This pickup is amazing! I love the sound/tone. It is bright but not biting and the output great! What's great about it is that it's not too heavy and by rolling off the tone and or volume, it sounds just as good. Sounds amazing on the gain channels of my amp (Egnater 4212 & Vengeance) AND it sounds great on the cleans. Nice and crisp as well, it can have a nice warmth. I have a Classic '57 in the neck b/c I wanted to add warmth and installed them at the same time, but honestly, the Angus sounds better/crisper.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Yes. It's a Gibson product, so it is made well. Not saying all Gibson products are made well, but this one is. Solid.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Sound is great! Great for any gain channel without being overbearing. It is a loud pickup as well. Tone is great; heavy bottom and crisp high's, but not biting. Sounds great on gain channel or clean channels
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
chrome. nicely packaged. no scratches
How has it stood up over time?
just got it, so we'll see, but i'm sure it'll last for as long, long time, provided i take good care of it
