Gus G. FIRE Blackouts System details:

Combines active and passive. The Gus G. Fire Blackouts System is a matched set of two passive humbucking pickups and a dual preamp that replaces one of the guitar’s volume pots.

Traditional humbucker design with individual pole pieces provides the note definition and string-to-string feel of passive pickups

Alnico 5 magnets deliver rich, detailed tones. The bridge pickup’s larger magnet adds more low-mids for fatter, fuller-sounding leads.

Custom-wound coils create a remarkably open, airy sound.

A high-output, low-noise differential dual preamp captures every nuance of the passive-style pickups—with plenty of headroom. Most other active preamps clip too easily, decimating your dynamics.

Long battery life. A single 9-volt battery provides approximately 750 hours of playing time.

Bare-wire lockdown connectors. Uses the same solderless connectors as our Liberator Pickup Change System. No soldering required if replacing existing active pickups. Screwdriver included.

Includes three additional 25K potentiometers for users who are replacing passive pickups.

Organic sound. Instead of tone that sounds as if it was created by a preamp, you’ll hear the wood of your guitar. You’ll hear your picking style. You’ll hear you.

Pickups hand-made in Santa Barbara, California. Preamp made in the USA.
