High gain players have always loved that amazing tone only achieved from high gain settings. Pushing the tubes gives a unique flavor and depth to the tone but this requires a special pickup. Hot pickup muddy to quickly…the answer? Low Output!

There are certain players who have mastered high gain playing and in doing so have not compromised on tone or clarity.

This pickup delivers the output and the clarity without muddying up yielding a dynamic warm, rich tone that is vibrantly bright yet not brittle with a punchy low end that hits hard!

This gem is made with:

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico V magnets
  • Output is approx. 6.5k @ Neck
  • Output is approx 7k @ Bridge
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Available in regular or F-spacing

    i got the neck version, it has a great tone from that late 70s era, very bluesy and articulate!

    The Pasadena has become my favorite neck humbucker for any guitar I’m seeking clarity in the neck position. Totally rocks with high gain too!
