    The Hot, Saturated "Hair Metal" Humbucker Sound

    Similar in output to the Dirty Shirt Humbucker but with a slighter coil offset for a tighter focus, the Classic '83 has thicker mids, a little more in the bass whilst keeping those fatter higher frequencies. Desiged for that saturated, early '80s 'high gain' sound

    Choose from Alnico 5, 8 or ceramic magnets - The 5 will give you a more rounded, vintage high output sound. The Alnico 8 is a great balance between the the 5 & Ceramic option, giving more treble but with a smoother roll-off to the mids whereas the Ceramic option works to emphasise those biting higher frequencies at gain but with an overall tighter sound.

    Great clarity & definition for a higher output humbucker. Avaialble in chrome, nickel or aged/matte 12-pole covers in the larger Fender Wide Range Size.
