The Planet Tone Afterburner Humbucker! Designed for the guitarist who takes their guitar to the next level whether a virtuoso or the weekend aficionado! Does your fretboard burn? This pickup is designed to match the nuances of aggressive playing styles. Bending, diving, pulls, taps and more…when you need a pickup than can deliver, shrill, thrill and send chills – look no further.

The pickup is tight yet responsive and powerful. The bottom is tight, punch but not thin or small. It has drive, power and response with mids that are perfectly seasoned to sparkle the top end and offer highs that are dynamic and rich but not thin and anemic. This wind allows players to focus on technique and to allow the pickup enhance your playing experience while providing a tone that is luscious, rich and addictive.

Made with care, this pickup has a  neck and bridge that delivers for heavy blues, classic rock, heavy rock, aggressive shred styles and more.

Afterburner Delivers with Bite

Fantastic Results. I normally get the aggressor as I like alnico V with 17K resistance but wanted to try something different. Far exceeded my expectations, I did t realize the 13k variant had as much bite, but with more clarity and the Pink Bobbins and Black hex matched my new Jem Jr perfect

Perfect for leads

I was looking for a different voice for the guitar I mainly use for lead work, and the Afterburner did not disappoint. Plenty of output, musical midrange, and perfect highs that never get harsh. This pickup sings. Planet Tone for the win!
