I installed a bunch of WCR pickups in some of my guitars and I'm very impressed! I installed the CherryBucker bridge on my 64 Strat, a DarkBurst bridge on my custom Warmoth Strat, a Crossroads set on my 88' Silverburst Les Paul showcase edition, a set of WCR Strat pickups on my 94' 57 reissue Strat and they all sound amazing! The DarkBurst sounds like instant VH! The single coil Strat pickups are the best one's I tried so far and I already had 4 different sets in that guitar! My favorite so far are the DarkBurst and CherryBucker, because they sounds full and bright and it works for many rock Styles. My guitars have turned into a squealing machines because of an increase in harmonics. Distorted sound sound clear without any mudiness. Jim gave me some different magnets to try(! ceramic and 2 different Alnicos)but he uses Alnico V on most of his pickups, I'll give them a try later, but for now I'm really happy how my guitars are sounding!
