    LOL!
    i think the A5 magnet adds a bit to the lower mids, and to the pups bottom end

    i still want a sound clip of the LW metals on heavy distortion

    because the bone crushing tone from those would be crazy!!

    it would probably castrate one as well(sp)

    Dont know, but those pickups are the hottest thing since hot sliced bread!

    Might be because alnico 5 magnets cut a bit better and create more of a shreddy type tone, not sure though. If so they could maybe rely on the active setup for more fatness and distortion and use the alnico 5 mag for a bit more cut and top end.

    Or it could just be that these are meant to be totally different sounding pickups and the different magnest make them what they are and thats what seymour wanted to do
