I installed the VFS1 pickups and the Haeussel ST Classic's a while ago, and I love the setup! The VFS1 is just such a nice/smooth/fuller sound, and the classics have some really nice quack to them. I'm not sure I've heard it quite like that out of my vintage Tokais with the E series pickups. Definitely more Knopfler sounding. I have not plugged in alot lately, so I'll have to do some comparing. I mainly play on my couch unplugged anymore, trying to learn from utube videos, such as yours. Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks. The install was easy. I got it right the first time.
