What should i expect from this pickup in a maple neck/poplar neck through guitar ? how are the clean tones ? how are the lead tones ?

I would think it is pretty much like a EMG SA in a humbucker size..haven't owned one tho.

The brightest pup EMG makes, sounds awesome in the neck... works great for clean and distorted tones, it really sings. I've got one in the neck of my Dinky HX with an 85 in the bridge. James Hetfield also uses the 60 as his neck pup, and I believe he does the solo to Nothing Else Matters with it.

It's a great neck pickup, very good for both cleans and distorted leads.
