Sorry for the late reply. The Throbak with a hotter custom wind like I have is in my opinion the best, hot vintage sounding humbucker available. It is the early EVH sound! It’s not all that well known, but I love it and am certain it’s my favorite and best humbucker pup of all that I own. I don’t think you’d be disappointed in it if you are going for that hot rodded, early 70s-80s, modded-vintage tone.
