Artec Splendor Humbucker Pickup with Alnico V Magnets
Based on the vintage P.A.F. designs of old, this 'Open Top' Humbucker is a classic pickup, offering authentic vintage tone and warmth with a full, even response. Capable of grinding, punchy Blues & Rock, and lovely rolled-off Jazz cleans.
Utilising an AlNiCo magnet will always produce a more open and dynamic tone, than can be found with typical ceramic magnets. And the AlNiCo V magnets to provide a more powerful, attacking tone with a full bottom-end. The 'open-top' offers a more raw, and slightly brighter tone than a covered pickup!
This set has a moderate output to let your instrument overdrive naturally when you crank your amp, and avoids the pitfalls of many 'over-wound' pickups that can mask a guitars natural character.
Another classic, with a quality of tone you’d expect to hear on a high-end guitar, but at a realistic price-point. Perfect for your upgrade or custom build project.
