What we say:
Suhr's hand made and hand wound pickups are excellent choices for retrofitting into your guitar. This middle position V70 single coil is made with an Alnico V magnet and has staggered polepieces (a Suhr modified design) to counterbalance the differing effect of magnetic pull on each of the guitar's strings and achieve an even magnetic field. This means you won't have certain strings popping out louder than others and large bends losing output.
This middle unit has a DC resistance of 5.8k and is reverse wound with reverse polarity to provide the customary noise-free selections on a typical S-type's pickup positions 2 and 4.
Every V70 pickup is hand-built, precisely wound (using our proprietary winding process) and features: plain enamel wire, specially formulated Alnico V magnets, and vintage correct gray fiber bottoms. The V70 also incorporates a modified staggered pole piece design, which provides an even magnetic field that is perfect for capturing those soaring multi-step bends that became an essential ingredient of the 70's solo. Another benefit is that they are a great fit for today's flatter neck radius equipped guitars.
V70's are exceptionally dynamic and respond to every nuance of your playing. Their tone is balanced with tight snappy lows and shimmering highs that cut ever so sweetly without sounding harsh. Whether you play Rock, Blues, or R&B, the V70 is ideal for the player searching for the ultimate 70's era single-coil pickup.
