Vintage-correct replica of classic Firebird® pickup. Great for jazz, blues, rockabilly, classic rock and heavy rock.
The sound is somewhat of a tonal cross between a single-coil and a humbucker. They're brighter and livelier than a full-size humbucker with more "bell tone." The Alnico 5 magnet and moderate output coil windings make it an authentic tonal reproduction of the great sound of a classic Firebird®. Comes with vintage-style single-conductor hookup cable.
Available in both neck and bridge versions. Also, the Vintage is commonly used in the neck with an SM-2 Custom or SM-3 Seymourized in the bridge position for higher output and versatility.
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with soft wood bodies (e.g., mahogany and swamp ash) and rosewood fingerboards.
