Description

The Elite Pro pickup set is the ideal set for the musician who wants something that has the warmth and dynamics of a vintage pickup but with an edge and flavor that is distinctive and noteworthy. A pickup set that turns heads when played clean and opens jaws when pushed with gain.

The set offers tone that is dynamic and yet uncanny in flavor. The Elite Pro set offers warmth, vibrancy and dynamics mixed with a tone voicing that is hard to, not only describe, but hard to beat. One can say its the perfect hybrid set between ’50s and ’60s, yet its more.  A set that must be experienced!

The neck is wound perfectly to 5.8k much like a traditional ’50s pickup by with just a few extra winds to give the pickup flavor with a thick robust tone, great for fat creamy leads or bigger rhythm but does not lack that high end clarity or chime. The middle pickup is also calibrated, wound RW/RP for hum canceling and balanced to give a good compliment to both the bridge and neck pickups. The bridge is slightly overwound to 6.35k, mild by today’s standards, yet bold and powerful for great lead tone or creamy blues solos!

Choose from Alnico V magnets (for more drive) or Alnico II magnets (for more sustain) and special Heavy Enamel Natural Copper wire, this pickup is the perfect 50s/60s blues hybrid and more!

  • Neck @ 5.8k

    These pickups are being installed into a custom guitar and although I haven’t fired them up yet I have heard these in other guitars and I was impressed. These review is dedicated for the amazing service I received when I accidentally broke one of the copper coil wires. I freaked out. Called Planet Tone and they said to send it back and they would make the repair. What I thought was a big deal turned out to be something they could remedy easily and melted the stress away. Within a week I received an email saying the pickup was coming home. USA made and exceptional support service will keep me as a customer for years to come. I will write a complete review once the pickups have been played for a period of time. For now five stars all day long. Service seems to be a thing of the past not with Planet Tone.
