Extended Range Guitar Pickup X Bar

Designed for Extended Range Guitars, (7-8 Strings | 8-9 Strings | 9-10 String Guitars) the X-Bar pickups have a broad, sensitive, wide band tone, with loads of warmth, clarity and headroom. The articulate low end is tight, but not bassy, and keeps your tone out of the mud-zone. The attack is smooth when playing both rhythms, riffs and leads, and the liquid crystal tone shines through for large chords.

Developed for straight or fanned necks, the extremely versatile X-Bars pickups excel at everything from jazz to metal and all points in between. Another advantage is there is no volume drop in split mode and working as a single coil; noise is virtually eliminated in comparison to standard old style humbucker designs.
