Well, its been a few days since I installed my new Motor City Afwayu set in my PRS McCarty. Let me start by talking about what I didnt like about the stock prs pup's (I actually had a prs dragon II in the bridge, but I didnt know this until I did the pup swap). The prs pups had a very narrow/boxy tone. The lows where tight but very small. The low mids lacked any chest hitting punch (just very boring sounding) And the highs, seemed to be a tad on the dull side. The only thing I liked about them was the nice, sweet upper mid bite.

So I swapped the prs pups for a Motor City Afwayu set. The new pups showed up flawless and with plenty of leed. So I wired them up. These pups are almost perfect sounding to me. Almost. The lows are awesome! very big yet still tite and controllable. The low mids are super punchy. Gives a very round and dynamic attack to palm mute/chugging. The highs are full and have a nice sparkle. The upper mids were lacking abit of the warmth and bite the prs pups had but still have enuff to give definition to chording. The output is perfect for my taste. Most likely too hot for someone looking for crystral cleans. The neck pup isnt dull and muddy at all.

Aside from the slightly sterile upper mids, I really like these pups. The guitar sounds 100 times bigger, wider and more dynamic. The boxy tone is gone for good. Highly Recommended

Ok the upper mid thing is growing on me. Digging the hell out of these pups. Its also the polar opposite of my main strat with a JB in it. I also wanted to add...These pups are a metalheads dream. WOW :D
