Hello! I don't think I've seen any info on this pickup so I thought I'd share my experience! It's the VH pickup apparently, although due to licensing etc, they can't say so. Described as a PAF rewind, mine is listed on the pack at 9.0k, Alnico II, initalled MJ which is apparently a good thing. This pickup is in my SE Bernie Marsden, in the bridge position. This pickup is very good, it's bright, lots of presence in the treble and high end. Mids aren't too prominent, (as most Duncans seem to be tuned) the bass is there, nice and fat but not boomy at all. Obv this was to go into an S type guitar, but I don't have one routed for humbuckers. I've heard people describe this pickup as not suited to a Mahogany guitar......well.... Sometimes I think people just post lies or stuff they don't know - this pickup is excellent in the Bernie Marsden. (Besides, it's a PAF rewind!!) I found the stock bridge HB too muddy, now this sounds great. It is bright - almost like the tone control goes from 10 to about 14/15. It's got lots of clarity, lots of harmonics, just a great pickup. I think this is the nicest Duncan I've tried yet. Compared to the 59/09 - It's more edgy, it's less compressed, less balanced in the frequencies, brighter. Similar output, less bass. Has anyone else tried it?
