Great if you're into warmer jazz tones, terrible if you want clarity. Wasn't for me in the end.
This neck pickup has been used in my Ibanez S521 MOL which has a mahogany body. In combination with the JB pickup in the bridge, well, the neck pickup did the job. However, it's nothing to write home about, as it's extremely muddy for high-gain applications. Split coil positions were rather "sterile" in a way as the ambient clean tones were rather too "boomy" in the low-end.
If you have a guitar that sounds too bright, this pickup may be for you. In the end, it wasn't for me. If you're looking for a neck pickup that has the clarity and brightness you're looking for, consider either a 59 or Pearly Gates in the neck position.
Clear, even pickup tone
This is a great pickup that has clarity and can be a rounded tone. I prefer the neck pickup Jazz as one of my standard choices. This pairs well with a JB, Custom, Custom 2, Custom 5, Pearly Gates, or hot version of PAF pickup in the bridge. There is enough bass to resonate and have a solid rhythm tone or even "woman tone", but it isn't a muddy bass heavy pickup. The mids are a little scooped and there is enough treble for the clarity and singing quality. This pickup works well with low gain or high gain amplifiers and is not as throaty as a 59 or JB.
