The 60AX humbucker packs plenty of output with a balance of thick, boosted mids, big lows and balanced highs. Featuring close aperture coils, similar to a mini-humbucker, this model produces rich harmonic overtones with plenty of sustain. The Alnico magnets tame some of the highs of the 60, while retaining a smooth treble response and plenty of output. The added X Series preamp provides even greater clarity and touch sensitivity, creating a marriage of active and passive tone and feel. Great in the rhythm position of your guitar for clean bluesy tones or the bridge position for some added crunch and punch to your sound. A solderless install process makes upgrading your guitar's sound easy to do on your own.
