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.
