Opinions on Ibanez / di marzio fusion edge pickups ?

lysanderlysander Frets: 434
They seem to be on many guitars in their range.
I’ve heard a few YouTube demos which I thought sounded pretty great, but that doesn’t mean much, and I’ve read various complaints that they were too dark and veiled.

    Think it depends on the guitar I had a six6fdfm and in that guitar they just lacked guts and were bland. The coil split was better than the full humbucker.  There was no tone control and they were mounted to the body, on my guitar the body route wasn’t deep enough to get the pickups further away from the strings and this caused issues with string pull. 
    I didn’t keep the guitar and sent it back

    Thanks, that’s not too reassuring.

    It could be I was asking too much from it, but the official Ibanez video on this model the player goes from semi clean sparkle to the chugs and I was hoping for the same. 
    It definitely chugs but that’s it.
