I love this pickup, it's probably my favourite passive for metal, especially when tuned low. But it's in a guitar that's not being used for metal. So it's a little sharp, thin, and too focused for my current needs.
I also feel it's somewhat mismatched with the Air Norton S that's in the neck position.
I'd love to swap for something a bit more suited for standard tuning, and something that's just a great all-round rock workhorse.
The DA is indeed an awesome pickup. Asskicker in basswood.
