Inspired by some of the PAF style pickups from the mid 70s where Alnico 3 was used (Alnico3 has no cobalt in it and cobalt was scarce in the mid-70s as it was used in nuclear warheads)
Smooth top end and has the potential to be very clean , but dirties up well with pedals or amp gain.
Great as a jazz/blues neck pickup or for those who want to ride the Crazy Train (Randy Rhoads' White LP had this spec of pickups in it)
7.6 neck 7.9 bridge (average)
Sold individually in either neck or bridge postion. Other bobbin colours may be available, please see the custom shop or contact us with requirements.
