Alnico V for that Classic vintage tone with modern Power, Tone and Body.
The SBS Arena Power humbuckers utilize Alnico V magnets for really
strong midrange, great touch and a crisp, clear treble. These are
overwound for lead playing! This is the 12.8K version which is our most
versatile set, and we recommend for most guitars. If you want it hotter
go for the "Arena Power Plus" set.
The "Secret Sauce" of the SBS humbucker line is our Hi-Gain, "Tuned
Coil" winding system. We accentuate the upper mids and high frequencies
allowing us to wind these very hot without losing string response. We
use high quality materials like German Silver baseplates, genuine Alnico
V Magnets, and each pickup is vacuum potted in a
beeswax/paraffin mixture for no-squeal playing at high gain levels.
These are four-wire pickups for easy coil splitting. All SBS humbucker
are "F" Spaced for perfect alignment with Floyd Equipped guitars.
Like all SBS pickups, the Arena Power set is designed by Steve Brown in
the USA. They feature the GFS proprietary "Kwikplug" system so you can
swap pickups out in an instant- NOTHING ELSE TO BUY- they come with a
standard solder lead just like any replacement pickup, but ALSO can be
instantly plugged into any SBS guitar or GFS pickup harness. Each pickup
comes with a four wire lead for easy soldering, pickup height
adjustment screws and springs.
