This is my third Magna'Tron purchased and I cant say it enough, they are everything you like about single coil sound but bigger !!! I truly do not understand how they are a humbucker. If you are a fan of single coils but want the sound "bigger" these are for you. My neck position sound is now useful....its not a dark, muddy mess, like most. Flip to the neck position and its like you plugged in a different guitar. These are just as bright and chimey as single coil but with more bass and when you add an overdrive pedal, you can achieve things a single coil won't do. After the past 25 years, I have stopped playing single coils all together and use these ONLY ! Do yourself a favor and try it, you won't be sorry. Thanks TV JONES !!!!!
