Custom Super 58 humbuckers are standard on Ibanez AS103 guitars. No doubt Ibanez chose a magnet that would sound very clean, but I wanted more character. The UOA5 magnet set in the neck and bridge is chimey without being harsh. Harmonics can be heard clearly and both positions sound great with a little overdrive. The change was well worth the effort. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a more complex tone.
Threw these in some Seymour Duncan Black Winters that were obnoxious. WOW, did it fix em!! Totally mellowed out that ridiculous ceramic tone! (Which if it's your thing, try original Black Winters :P)
I got a pair of these, and I don't know if it was the setup or what, but one in particular had more of an A5 chimey sound but without the overbearing loudness of a regular A5. In the neck pickup it gives a lovely, woody tone that I can't get with any other magnet. It's great!
