High gain players have always loved that amazing tone only achieved from high gain settings. Pushing the tubes gives a unique flavor and depth to the tone but this requires a special pickup. Hot pickup muddy to quickly…the answer? Low Output!

There are certain players who have mastered high gain playing and in doing so have not compromised on tone or clarity.

This pickup delivers the output and the clarity without muddying up yielding a dynamic warm, rich tone that is vibrantly bright yet not brittle with a punchy low end that hits hard!

This gem is made with:

  • Enamel wire
  • Alnico V magnets
  • Output is approx. 6.5k @ Neck
  • Output is approx 7k @ Bridge
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Available in regular or F-spacing
  • Hand made to order in the USA

Van Halen VH1 Eruption Guitar

I have a custom made Black & White Strat Frankie tribute, I built this summer. It was outfitted with a JB humbucker but I wanted more!! I put this 1978 Pasadena in along with Eddies 1978 string selection & my Marshall Amp settings. It now sounds the closest I’ve ever had one of my guitars to get. If your looking for that CLASSIC late 70’s Early 80’s Hard Rock tone.... this is the one for you. The price is right for a boutique pick-up & the sound is erupting off this guitar now. Those EVH chasers don’t ignore this one!!!
