Designed to give tribute to the pickups and the output the early Southern pioneers may have played. Every once in a while, a player comes along and captivates a generation and their music starts  a movement, a genre of music all to its own. Just like Southern Rock players love the Allmans, there are certain bands that truly become the godfather of that genre. Behind those bands are guitar players who may have passed, but who’s spirit lives in the music they made. Duane was one of those players. This set is our tribute to him. Southern Heritage? Think Skydog or Warren. ?

The set  offers warmth, depth and a smooth vintage tone that is both luscious and dynamic. The neck is bold but not hot, its vintage through and through and you will immediately notice something beyond stock pickups, something beyond the normal tone. Something with depth, character and yet very vintage. Crisp, clean but not cold and brittle. Something full, vibrant and dynamic.

The bridge is similar, perfectly calibrated to balance the set, drive leads but not something that is thin. Something with Southern Bite! Not just a weak bark, but something that will bite and let the world know you are in the house! Tone that will turn heads.

If you are playing production pickups, chances are your pickups have been doing okay and may sound warm but there is a difference between something made just for you and something made for everyone. Our pickups are that difference.

    Great pickup for some good classic rock tones, like 38 special, some lynyrd skynyrd, does AC/DC well also, works great with some overdrive!

    I’m blown away by how good these Southern Heritages sound. I installed them in my Les Paul and can get any tone or style I want. I definitely will be purchasing another set of pickups from Planet Tone.

    I love the tone and drive I get from these. Very smooth creamy tone that bodes well with my playing style . Has that allman feel to it. I will definitely be back for more . Until then Rock On
