Just put a set of these in my RG Premium, not only do they look the shit with matte black metal covers, they sound the shit too! Pretty much get very close to the tone you hear on record, and as such I've been playing the crap out of them this weekend.
Not a metal pickup by any stretch of the imagination, but if you're looking for a prog/rock type of tone with a little nod to holdsworth then these may well be your pickups. Cleans are really nice, present, bell like shimmery with a good solid low end. In fact the neck reminds me a bit of the qualities of a deactivator neck in terms of the single coil characterstics, but with a lot more feel and more fluid, less stiff than the deactivator.
Really recommend them!
Oh, and I'm also really digging the area54 as a middle single coil as well, even if it is a stacked coil!
So yeah, if you like Steve's new record, I'd really advise you checking these out!
I had a Luke III for a while. The pickups were excellent.
