description
Developed by contributors to our web user group who replaced the ceramic or Alnico 2 magnet in an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom with an Alnico 5. Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the Custom 5's tone is more vintage, with less distortion, but it's still very strong and powerful. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

complete setup
Recommended for bridge position. Often a Custom 5 is paired with a '59 for real-deal P.A.F. tones in the neck.

guitars
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.
