The neck pickup yields the rich, sparkling tone of the traditional three-pickup guitar. The result: that unmistakable single-coil sound that echoes the soaring, majestic blues tones of the ’60s and ’70s.
The neck pickup with a special cap engaged, affords this position a special tonal quality you would ordinarily expect to hear from a full-body jazz guitar.
The neck and bridge pickups are in a customized parallel wiring, producing an enhanced, more contemporary version of the customary middle position timbre on the classic two-pickup guitar.
By combining both pickups with a capacitor and resistor in a controlled degree of reversed phase, this position offers the popular “in-between quack tone” found on three-pickup guitars.
This is an updated stock-style bridge pickup with symmetrically staggered pole pieces for great string balance and a special wind for increased sustain. It captures that amazing gutsy lead sound found on the very best of those traditional two-pickup guitars!
