If Tim Mills' assessment here is correct then these are some pretty awesome pickups indeed.
The Black Hawk is very good for a range of applications and the idea behind doing a fusion clip as well as progressive and metal was to try and get players to think a little outside the box with this one. On paper the DC resistance puts the Black Hawk in with vintage output humbuckers however the design of the coils, blades and magnets allow the pickups to produce a lot of output, easily up there with the contemporary humbuckers, whilst retaining the open top end response and mids of the vintage range. The driven tone is absolutely excellent but these humbuckers are capable of a lot more besides and will be equally at home in a semi as they will a modern metal guitar. You'll notice in the homepage slide show the Black Hawks are loaded into a Black Machine, essentially a very modern style guitar however in the youtube video Adam is using a very old '70s LP loaded with Black Hawks - they look great and more importantly sound great in both!
