I just got a cheapo GFS humbucker and I love it

GFS Kalamazoo Pro Series, single conductor, Alnico V covered humbucker and it just slays the EMG-HZ passive humbucker that I had in my LTD Viper. The EMG had far more output but I like the tone of the GFS much better.

I like this pickup so much I may put a pair in my Ibanez Artcore instead of the much more expensive Seymour Duncan '59 pair I have long considered.

If for some reason the GFS Alnico humbucker doesn't sound as good in the hollowbody as it did in my solidbody, then I am only out 70 bucks. Any other GFS fans?
