Seymour Duncan Parallel Axis 2B/3B pup

There's a blog about the Parallel Axis series of pickups on the Seymour Duncan site that claims the Blues Saraceno model (3B) can make a Super Strat sound closer to a Les Paul. I would love that for my RG320. But I would like to hear from a few others that have tried the 3B on a Super Strat on whether that's accurate or marketing hype.

Additionally, would like to hear good or bad experiences with the 2B on a Super Strat.

Thanks!

The 2B ( distortion) is my all time fav pickup.
It has all I wanted, fat,punch, warm, singing lead tone. but no les paul tone by any mean.
if you put it to super strat it will remain as strat in steroid tone.
but it happened to me that I actually installed it to my all time fav guitar too.
So I don't know how it sounds on other guitar, would it be that nice or maybe different?

Is the guitar that you have the 2B installed in made of basswood, by the way? If not, what is the body wood?

What kind of guitar is the other 'favorite' one that you also installed a 2B on? What kind of body wood?
