For quite some time enterprising DIY modifiers have been splicing the DNA of mild mannered PAF style pickups to that of monster hi output pickups … to create half and half, best of both worlds hybrids.

This pickup is designed like that from the outset! It uses radically asymmetric  coils create a harmonically rich and punchy end result. Never clogged or muddy and with string definition and almost single coil like top end  responsiveness

Especially good on darker sounding guitars or used in HsH or Hss combinations. Bridge 11k neck 8.9k. Magnets alnico 5

Available with double row hex-bolt poles or in standard ‘slug and screw’ disguise! 

It’s Alive!
