Hotter-than-vintage mini-humbucker. Great for blues, classic rock, southern rock, jam and hard rock.
With this unique design, each coil contains a high-carbon steel blade coupled to the bottom-loaded Alnico V magnet. The result is more midrange, more clarity and more detail than the SM-2. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
Available for both neck and bridge positions. The bridge version is high output. The neck version is compensated for tonal balance. Often, an SM-3b Seymourized is used in the bridge with an SM-1n Vintage in the neck for versatility.
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with soft wood bodies (e.g., mahogany and swamp ash) and rosewood fingerboards.
