Artec Splendor Humbucker Pickups – Alnico V Cream Pearl
Based on the vintage P.A.F. designs of old, this ‘Open Top’ Humbucker is a classic pickup, offering authentic vintage tone and warmth with a full, even response. Capable of grinding, punchy Blues & Rock, and lovely rolled-off Jazz cleans.
Artec are well known for quality pickups and the Splendor series features unique pearl finishes to the bobbins, really allowing your guitar to stand out.
Utilizing an Alnico magnet will always produce a more open and dynamic tone than can be found with typical ceramic magnets. And the Alnico V magnets to provide a more powerful, attacking tone with a full bottom end. The ‘open-top’ offers a more raw, and slightly brighter tone than a covered pickup!
This set has a moderate output to let your instrument overdrive naturally when you crank your amp and avoids the pitfalls of many ‘over-wound’ pickups that can mask a guitar’s natural character.
Another classic, with a quality of tone you’d expect to hear on a high-end guitar, but at a realistic price-point. Perfect for your upgrade or custom-build project.
