Hi Alex

Yes, I have the AT fitted on my Blade Durango, mahogany body, maple neck. Its a very detailed pick up with a lot of variable tone from using the volume knob, very good presence and certainly cuts through. (Note - Andy Timmons uses a mahogany Ibanez with maple neck and the pick up is specifically voiced for this combination)

Played through my Carvin Nomads it works really well both direct into the amp drive channel, or through a Zoom & Digitech modelling pedal into the clean channel. Not a lot of pick ups achieve this, they either don't drive the tubes well enough for rock or distort the modelling pedal. Its a medium gain pick up, with high gain presence and detail.

Tone wise, think of a less harsh and more flexible JB. The only other pick ups I've found that can play effectively through both modelling pedal and the amp drive channel are Carvin C22 & J22 humbuckers.

There's a few You Tubes with them fitted on all mahogany guitars and they sound pretty tasty that way too. I'm not sure they would be as nice on ash and alder guitar body guitars, but then I don't like JBs on these woods either.
