    If it works the same--cool--but there could be a difference in materials.

    I'm sure there could be differences....That pickup is still subject to all the variables in a conventional pickup such as wire size, winding method, and number of turns. I'd guess that the builder, Lollar in this case, would be trying to achieve the voicing of an original, so they might sound pretty good.

    They are a brand to consider when looking for replacements
