Those are really sweet sounding pickups. I still love my S60A's and AP11's but they are really nice :)

And adding this humbucker one from 2019, just because I don't *think* it was posted in this thread earlier.

That single coil comparison video is really helpful.
And makes me glad I've got the three Lithium single coils in my Aries. 8)

I really wish I had the vocabulary to be able to describe differences...but I didn't dislike any of them.

The twinblades... I like them at the bridge. Don't really like them in the middle or at the neck. I liked everything else.
Heh, maybe that's why the Lithiums sounded so good to me... they came on right after the twinblades. :)

I hated both the Lithiums and the Twinblades. But I did a full rundown of my thoughts in the other thread about the single coils.

As a single coil, no, I didn't care for the Twinblades...but out of the context of the video title, I dug 'em. It does make sense to put them in this video, though, because they were mostly ordered as an alternate single coil pickup on models like the Bolt and DC135.
