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.

Full, rounded and articulate. Plenty of gain to produce a creamy overdrive tone, but cleans up well and is never muddy. Very clear and well defined. Awesome customer service!!!

My new favorite pickup

Planet Tone knocked it out of the park with the Afterburner. The notes stay clear and articulate even with heavy distortion. Cuts right through the mix. A great pickup at a great price and totally worth the wait. I’ll eventually outfit all my guitars with Planet Tone pickups.

I can't even describe these without sounding like a salesman. They're very crisp and articulate while holding the warmth to back their sound, meaning they're clear and responsive for shredding individual notes while having the punch to drive any chords! As soon as I dropped them into my guitar I heard the immediate difference and it provided a whole new experience while playing. I couldn't be happier with them, thank you so much Planet Tone! Rock on!
