Seymour Duncan Magic Touch-mini / Alnico II Pro Custom pickups
Magic Touch-mini pickup in neck position has its iconic tonal clarity of a single cut solid body, yet with extra fatness and mildness. Its output level is also carefully tweaked to match the bridge pickup. Thanks to its strong magnetic field, the pickup height can be set very low to achieve better playability while keeping the output balance. Alnico II Pro Custom pickup in bridge position has a copper plate on the bottom and mounted on a steel plate like typical bridge pickup on single cut guitars. This construction dramatically changes the way how the magnetic field acts, contributing to a so-called ‘Twangy Tone’.

Additionally, The calculated intonation points where the strings touch the saddles allow each string to have precise intonation. These saddles are made of Titanium for maximum tonal clarity.
