    I suspect that you will be happy with the outcome. They work well in my CE.

    Got her installed in my McCarty std today. It sounds thick with good note separation. The highs seems a little less bitey than a HFS. It also has a tighter feel. I usually need to set my bridge pickup a little lower with hotter pickups and the screws actually were too short for me to get to the 4 or 5/32 area that I usually prefer. By comparison, I have my 5708s and 5909s around 3/32". I have to put some longer screws in tomorrow and I will try to do a clip. I have a 5909 in the neck so I can't do matched \m/ set middle position.

    Gotta finish grabbing some tone samples today. Shipping the Metal to Queen City tomorrow for review by a real metal player.

    Snapped a few pics yesterday after putting gold pole-pieces in them. Polished covers look great on this guitar.

    I thought the "\m/" stood for "metal". Thanks to Skitchy's video I now know it's rock fingers. Man, I feel like such a bonehead.
    Too many and never enough...

    YES! I freaking love it. I can't wait to give these puppies a run for their money. That guitar looks way better in your factory than at my place haha

    Here's a quick sample I did. These are parts I wrote inspired the 1st time playing thru the \m/ pickup. It's still rather new so forgive the slop and slight out of time/tune. I keep altering the parts, or I would've had it done sooner.

    I love the clean tones! Out of curiosity, is the bridge on the guitar locked down or floating? Sounds incredible!
