The SAV is a single coil pickup that has all the tone, clarity, and responsiveness guitar players demand with a vintage look enthusiasts will love. While similar to the SV, the SAV uses flat Alnico V pole pieces rather than traditional staggered pole pieces. This makes the SAV more balanced for newer instruments designed with a flatter fretboard radius.
The tone of the SAV is modeled after the early Strat™ pickups, giving players that familiar "quack" and punch. This marriage of vintage design and state of the art electronics gives the SAV a much smoother tonal response when played clean or with overdrive. If you're looking for a quiet single coil pickup with a vintage look and sound, the SAV is a perfect choice.
