Warm, Sweet Tone!
The APS-1's hand ground Alnico 2 magnets and moderate windings (Heavy Formvar® wire) help give a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. The APS-1 allows you to get more of your distortion from your amp rather than the pickup itself, so for example you can back off the crunch and get wonderful clean tones with softer attack. The APS-1 has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response, compared to the SSL-1. This pickup comes with a waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate.
Designed for Warmer Toned Ash, Alder or Basswood Bodies
The APS-1 is designed for warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments and works with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
Also Available in a Set or Different Versions
This pickup is also available in a regular version and left-handed version, or in a Calibrated set (Right-Handed).
