    Nice video! I have a set in my 2014 Traditional. I'm pretty sure I'm well past the honeymoon phase and still love them. Just incredible pickups.

    I have had a set of these installed in one of my LPs since they were first released. I wouldn't trade them for anything else.

    I have the original SD / Bonamassa set in a high quality LP copy and I love them. I wonder what the differences are with the Skinner set? They sound great, but so do my original set.

    I had two sets! I had preordered a set and got #25 of 1,959, then I ordered another set that special ordered to be a little hotter, SD also put the covers I wanted on them (Throwbak's) I sent the set in....MJ was a little curious as to why and I explained to her the whole pickup cover shape thing....they were like "whatever" Ok....

    Sound wise, I thought they sounded amazing, but tastes changed....by memory comparison the First set of JBs were very similar to Antiquities....the sets I had were very detailed and the notes were clear.

    The Skinners have a different feel....they are thinner, but not by much, the neck pickup is very powerful.....they are similar....the first JB set was better balanced between the neck and bridge...

    I have both sets also and I agree the Magellan set (first set) sounded much like Ants with their weakened magnets. They also were better balanced between neck and bridge. However, I found the Magellan set thinner and weaker than the Skinner set. I ended up ditching the Magellan neck in my 335 and replacing it with a stock Magellan bridge. I then put a fully charged short A5 in a stock Magellan bridge and used that for the bridge position. That setup is killer in my 335! Notably, aside from using Throbak covers, I feel no urge to change anything about the Skinners in my CC4.
