Description

The Z-Core 5 Vintage Hot Set is a step up in output from the Vintage Set. The neck and middle pickups are targeted at a vintage output, but more like those early/mid 60’s versions that were wound a little hotter. The bridge is pushing a more modern “boutique” output, with a few more winds over the original vintage designs to round out the attack and deliver more punch. 

This set utilizes 2 standard 250 k audio taper pots, with a dedicated tone knob on the bridge pickup and a 250 k no load audio taper pot wired as the neck and middle tone. Other control and wiring options are available by special order. Pricing may vary.
