My bet is neck pickup will be a little hotter than jugg neck (to compensate for more heat in the bridge) and will still have PAFish voicing.

The demo sounds sick but I am not so big on a less 'versatile' pickup.  I like to cover a lot of range in what I do.

The EQ chart kinda reminds me of a DiMarzio Tone Zone - only improved! Definitely has me interested!

I kinda got the bridge pup right... Wasn't expecting that 16k neck pickup though...

Well, what do you think guys after listening official sound samples on the website?
Once I`ve seen them this morning I could wait to get back home from work and listen to them in peace, but anyway...

It`s my first really quick impression, still waiting on more demos (especially Rabea and Rick) but...

I don`t quite like (based on website clips) the rhythm tone, too much of saturation, just too much of everything a bit in my opinion. I guess it`s hard to tame that pickup especially with loads of gain.

 So a little bit disappointing with bridge pickup but...
I must say I really like neck pickup even though it`s ceramic magnet and high output especially for neck models. I both like modern cleans on neck as well as distorted sound in modern metal clip.

what do you think?

Yeah, I wasn't super impressed either. Seems to have too much heat.

Don`t get me wrong, my favorite BKP is Miracle Man which I`ve been using mainly either live or studio for a while. MM is 17.5 kΩ but jugging by Ragnarok clips MM is more controllable. And there`s nothing to do with modern voicing at all which I like too, just too much of everything in my opinion. But just wait for more demos to kick in...

I must say I really like neck model, really curious about it though.

I understand just what you mean here.

The Classic Rock clip was the one that stood out to me.  I like the way the top end has a harmonic sheen like  the Rebel Yell.  It doesn't have a fizzy top end. 

Anyone notice how the bulk of clean examples are with the bridge and neck pickup coil tapped? 

The modern metal example sounds better to my ear than the juggernaut modern metal example.  But then again, once I got the Juggs in my guitar and I dialed them in, I found an incredible pickup.  These will certainly serve a purpose.

I'm pretty sure though that Ragnarot been calibrated on Misha's Jackson guitar!!

So i think that our boy Ragnar will be more suited for brands like
Jackson, Ibanez and ESP and not to Gibsons!!

It's tempting though to see what the result would be if i install them
to my Midd/Bright LP  :evil:

Has anyone seen any demo of Ragnarok yet? I`m quite surprised that after nearly 3 weeks after premiere there`s not even one demo/review ect on YouTube (apart from Misha and Rabea).
