Product Detail

When you want a pickup that can deliver all the great classic tones but with some extra edge and just a little attitude then the Benchmark will hit the spot. An Alnico V magnet delivers vintage tone in spades but has an ace up its sleeve when you want to push a little harder. The 8.5k output is just enough to find extra grind for rockers that like to play just a little dirtier than their pure vintage counterparts, yet it's still mild enough to respond beautifully to a pulled back volume or moving from fingers to a pick. The classic ‘bucker that everyone knows, but this one goes to eleven! A calibrated neck version forms the perfect blues/rock combo or twin it with a British Rail T for a custom T experience bar none. Available in open coil or covered versions and vintage 2 braid or modern 4 conductor options.
