        If you are looking for the Dimebag, Nuno, or Chuck Schuldiner tone then look no further. They all used these and they are smoking hot! Fair warning in that they call for a steady hand to keep under control due to the high gain, so a noise gate may be a wise investment, but overall the clarity, depth, and agressive nature of the tone is to die for!

        I have one of these in the bridge position with the L500R in the neck. The are wired up with coil splits and a phase switch. The only good tone I can get out of the XL is with the selector in the middle position with the phase switch active. Nice clear sound like this but otherwise very dull and muddy. No clarity or chunk. The other XL I have was wired up in the bridge of a 80's LP copy again with the L500R in the neck. No splits or phase on this one. Same result. Very dull and muddy, no harmonics. But the L500R however is great in both positions. Great response range, great harmonics and really nice sustain and distortion.
        I have had two of these in different guitars wired differently in each with the same dull result. I find the tone very muddy with little to no harmonic response.
        Just like the L500R the build quality seems solid.
        Not a bad price but better off staying away from the XL and go with the L500R.

          Excellent hot pickup. I play hard roçk and was looking for pickup to meet my needs. I was looking at other more expensive pickups but after research reading several good reviews, so I went for it. This pickup delivers. I installed it backwards so hotter rail is
          Inside. I'm very happy with this pickup, it really cuts through and has a pronounced sound.

            Put this thing in my Hamer Korena Standard. Way exceeded my expectations. I'm a blues player by nature but love me some metal from time to time. Dont buy this for metal. Buy it for everything. Sustain? CHECK. Tone? CHECK. Clarity? CHECK. Don't get other pick-ups with Dime's name on it. Get this one.

                After trying 2 different BKP bridge pickups for my PRS Tremonti SE, I decided to try this one since I am a fan of Dimebag's tone. I am blown away. Punchy, clear mids, & smooth singing highs. Not harsh sounding at all. If your like the chugga chugga style, you should try this pup.

                  This pickup is amazing! I play everything from Hard Rock to Reggae to Country and it sounds great for it all. It's the most versatile sounding humbucker I've ever had. Here's the bottom line: it's just a great sounding pickup that has the full range sound..not muddy like a PAF style humbucker. It has great highs lows and mids. Also, the split and parallel wirings sound cool too!

                  Get this pickup and throw away all the others! You won't be disappointed!

                  This pickup has it all! Try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
                  This pickup has it all, Great Tone, Clarity, and Output. It's rare that you have all 3 in one pickup, you usually have to compromise, but not with the L500XL!
                  Built Solid. Very Cool looking pickup!
                  I can't believe the price with all that you get for it!

                  Comments about Bill Lawrence L500XL Hot Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

                  i put this in my ibanez rg in the bridge position and was blown away with how horrible this thing sounded. there was no attack no gain and no harmonic responce what so ever. i play metal and have been tring to find that pantera kinda sound and this pickup is not the answer not even close. i put the stock inf 4 back in for now.

                  The best pick-up i had! Nice tone and very versatile!

                  By 87247020

                  Comments about Bill Lawrence L500XL Hot Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup:

                  It's a nice pick up coz it has this clarity and sustain needed for punchy rhythms and solos.
                  I've been an Extreme fan or I should say Nuno in particular (haha!) so i decided to buy this one here in MF and install it to my Washburn N1 and i couldnt be more pleased with it's tone. I play Extreme songs a lot and i can get the exact tone that Nuno has! But the best thing about this pick up is it's versatility, in a way that it can adapt to any songs or tone that i have in mind no matter what guitar effects i use.
                  I like the design of it and the quality is actually good. However, the "Bill Lawrence" print can easily be remove. It only took my nails to erased the print! But not a big deal anyways.
                  Price is fair for a great pick up and for the fact that legendary Nuno Bettencourt still uses this one.

                  if you appreciate the lead guitar of Extreme and the late Dimebag, this is their bridge pickup.
