The Oil City Masterwound BlackHeart 7 is a direct replacement for popular 'active sized soap bar' pickup. 

Unlike active alternatives this pickup has shades of 'old school' tone and warmth that can't be replicated by battery powered circuits. Cleans are organic and string tones are seperated, but with a depth and punch.  15k bridge and 10k neck (average). Availiable alnico 5 or ceramic powered. 



availiable in  and eight string, slanted and streight configurations to special order
