Cool pickups, great Gibson tone; still a bit bright but still unmistakably PAF.

Re: anyone with experiences with the air classics?

trying to get an es335 vibe out of it ala lee ritenour. i like the smallr am73 for performance reasons. i actually want them a tad brighter than the stock artcores...at least for the bridge. the neck i'd like to be warm, but with more character and complexity. if it's too bright, i'll pop on some nickel covers.

Have a friend with them in a Gibson 175, so much better than stock !
He put in a push-pull tone pot to take them in series or parallel.
Warmth, bite, everything.

I just dropped a pair in my YAMAHA RG...they are great pickups. Low output,but great tone and harmonics...alot of people don't like them,but I do. Shawn Lane used them in his Vigier Signature model too. Can't go wrong.
