I've been using them for two weeks.
I know the Gibson 57 and Dimarzio 59 pickups and these certainly play in the same league!

Due to the good reviews here and my bumping into a guitarist who had a Strat with Tornade SA, I got a 55 for my Tele Squier classic vibe 50 last year
My jaw simply dropped open.
This month I had my quarter-size '80s Washburn equipped with some Tornade PAF 59 Alnico 2.
And once again I was left dumbfounded!
The sound of the guitar is completely different, it doesn't have the grotesque coloration of the original pickups, it's now the playing that gives it its timbre.
The same pots that used to be useless are now amazing.
But what impresses me most is the amount of nuances available and the ability to highlight subtleties (provided you play with some intention, with feeling). It's great!
What I like least: I need to learn to play now!

I would obviously buy them again.

By the way, Marc showed me a home-made Fuzz germanium pedal and it was breathtaking.
The 18 watts British amp and the Deluxe Reverb are also wonderful.
