So I just experienced my first go in a jam setting with these 60th Anniversary R9 unpotted PAF clones. They do squeal quite a bit and need to be tamed win either distance or less gain. Less gain in a jam when other guitarists get too loud is less than an ideal situation. When you cannot hear your own playing, that’s an issue. That said, mostly I don’t get out to jam so the levels don’t get too high. Mostly I play in my home with friends and the levels are relatively tame. That said, these PUs deliver the sweetest, thickest tone and sustain forever when not pushed to the point of feedback. I love the sound. Not so much the squeal. Looking for ways to shield these pickups with needing to mod the guitar. I have a spare pair of the 1st edition Bonamassa PAF clones but I’d rather not modify this guitar.
