i got tired of the hum in my crappy but beloved bc rich ssh. it was noisey but has a great neck. so i replaced the neck and middle single coils with these great little humbuckers.
they were packaged really well, once i got them out they measured 11.95 and 11.85 k, so i put the bigger one in the middle.
i tune that bc rich down to c and the artecs sound better than i had hoped. strong, full, warm and beefy. neck and bridge combined, they sound thick and balanced and just plain cool.
i haven't tried them in parallel yet, but i will probably wire up some switches next time i feel like firing up the soldering iron.
the old stock bridge humbucker is wired out of phase, so when i blend the middle artec with that i get a beauty thin phased tone too. happy accident. pretty sure i am going to leave it like that.
honestly, i doubt i could find a better hot rails type pickup, especially for the price. these things are great. super happy with them.
