special order -
F-SPACED is wider string spacing for Strat or Floydr Rose type bridges
An ALNICO 8 Magnet has a stronger magnetic flux then the normal Alnico
5, more magnetism. A higher magnetic flux provides
higher output and wider frequency response.
We have always like the Alnico 8 instead of going to the (harsh
sounding) Ceramic magnets some use to try to get maximum output.
The Alnico 8 magnet is a very good choice for a more modern sound with
really good highs and deep, full, round bass. The higher output makes
them "Rock on!" too.
Our Alnico 8 magnet pickups have been setting the new standards for
killer humbucking tone with massive sustain and real solid power
without becoming harsh or sterile. A great sound.
Our Very Vintage specification is 7k to 7.5k. The
REAL classic Gibson Sound, crisp clean tone, punchy, warm overdrive. -
the all-around pickup with singing, smooth character.
Also more than terrific for Jazz and clean players.
Smooth "Crunchy" breakup and sweet sustain.
Grab a set of Very Vintage's for a guitar that is too dark sounding -
you will love it!
Our Blues Model is 7.5 to 8k duplicating the slight
overwind found on lots of 50's guitars.
Tone is warmer, a bit hotter than the Very Vintage
but nowhere into the excess distortion and muddy tone of other "hot"
Tone is clear, with a warm midrange and lots of sustain.
A lot of the most famous players had Vintage Gibsons with pickups that
had ACCIDENTIALLY been overwound to this Blues Spec - stronger, they
drive the amp into overdrive a little easier
A favorite for blues and rock players with a great blend of easy
overdrive and very good clarity when you back off of the volume control.
Also very, very good for classic Jazz tone in arch top guitars. - that
warm, "dusky" smooth tone
Got a guitar that is heavy and bright? - Drop in a calibrated set of
Torres Blues or Rock pickups and get that axe's tone HAPPENING!
The Rock model is 8.5 to 9k, and duplicates the
tone of the considerably overwound pickups on old Les Pauls. The
guitars with this tone are some of the "standards" for great guitar
Tone is real big, fat, with a warm midrange - they DO NOT lose highs
like other hot pickups as even 9k with 42 gauge wire is not excessive
Lots of output and real singing sustain.
The all new BUZKUT Humbuckers
are a technological breakthrough. Cleaner then a Gretsch but
as strong as a Gibson Les Paul. Amazing frequency response, incredible
bass response, clarity and defined tone PLUS tons of output and power.
Too good for words. They are for the player who
doesn't want to sound like everyone else. - they are all new and
Delivery time on humbuckers pickups is about 1 week .
