    It sounds like shit; bright, thin shit. Went back to ceramic after 20 minutes!

    Well good news! I put two little ceramic bar magnets where the spacers would normally be and got great results! The low strings are much clearer with the distortion on! I got the idea from the Gibson 500T, I know there must be other pups that are like this, perhaps the SD Invader and Dimarzio X2N? I'll post a soundclip later.
