Thanks, good to hear. Ive had Rebel Yell, Black Dog, VHII, Riff Raff and Mule so far. Great pickups. I would love to try some of the high output stuff soon. Just recieved an Emerald bridge in the mail, will try to install it in my Gibson les paul as soon, and also try the D Activator set on my JP6. I have to be fair and mention that i really like the lead / solo sound of the Crunch Lab. It sings well and is pretty pleasant to shred with. I also have a Dimarzio Fred laying around somewhere that I can try out in my 7 sting. After reading all the replies, Im convinced that many people seem to like Dimarzios for a reason, perhaps I should try our more models before I decide if they fit me or not.
