I have 3 sets of Wilde pickups L 45,s L280,s L200,s for strat style guitars. I love all sets and play a different set each Sunday. I read posts here all the time. about the micro coils 280,s L 45,s and keystones. but the L 200 flies under the radar. if you have to have a dialed in strat tone in a noiseless pickup. these are the best and at the best price. I have them in a Squier Affinity Strat. I have the set with the L200 SL not the 290. I got them around 2007 I think. I am still impressed with them. I took this axe to Guitar Center to test some amps and picked up a American Standard and tried a amp .then played my axe. I learned I do not need a new guitar. I could hear all the quack with the 200,s as well as the American Standard. the 200,s sounded a bit sweeter.but left me wanting nothing.all the Wilde pickups I have are great each set brings something different to the table. I do not have a favorite set. but I think the L200,s do not get enough mention here.
