Seymour Duncan Lari Basilio S-S-H pickups:
Lari’s signature set of pickups by Seymour Duncan feature 3 pickups that are each unique to each other, but also combine to make the perfect combo. The neck pickup is a mix of Alnico 5 and Alnico 4 magnets that combine for vintage tone with a lot of body and presence, while the middle pickup is a special mix of Alnico 5 and Alnico 2 magnets to help create more tonal options, as well as very unique look. Lari’s bridge position humbucker features Alnico 5 magnets and is voiced to be versatile and well balanced, focusing on attack and clarity over a wide range of tones from clean to high gain. For the type of player that Lari strives to be, having a versatile tone is essential, and these pickups always deliver.
