Description

The Z-Core 5 Modern/Vintage Set is an example of a configuration where the bridge output is “two notches up” from the neck and middle. In most of the modern re-imaginings of vintage pickup configurations, including the standard sets we list above, the bridge is what we could consider “one notch up” (whereas most of the original pickup sets were all wound to the same output level). This is an output level that we find particularly useful, in fact bridging the gap between Vintage and Modern output. We could go crazy listing all of these out, but you can see the pattern behind it. If you’d like to imagine this kind of configuration in a different output level, let us know, that’s well within our Custom Shop capabilities.
