This review has been a long time coming... the guitar I put these pups in has been on the bench for repairs for a while.
Recently i took them out and installed them into my other LP in time for a gig.
MHD 86/87s are A2s wound to about 9k.
I had asked Rayne to wind mine not as hot... about 8.8 in the bridge & 7.7 in the neck.
How do they sound? WOW. Great pups. They sounded great at home thru the practice amp but even better cranked onstage thru the live rig & PA.
We joke a lot on this forum about slashtone
but these pups can deliver you what you want
We played some GNR and after the show the soundguy told me in all seriousness that the tone I had goin' on was probably the closest he's heard to slash from anyone other than slash himself
These pups have a nice crunchy bridge tone and the neck has an amazingly smooth, almost glassy tone to it. Great harmonics too and can control feedback with ease.
So talk to Rayne at MHD and he can wind you a kickass pup
