Clean or dirty, the 8-String Sentient delivers great neck tone for extended range guitars, and pairs well with the Nazgl & Pegasus bridge models.
The Sentient humbucker was originally designed to accompany the 7 and 8 string passive Nazgl and Pegasus bridge pickups. It delivers a balanced, versatile tone that fits right between the 59 model and the Jazz neck pickup. Youll get pristine cleans, and fluid leads under high gain. The Sentient is a very articulate vintage output pickup with great dynamic response and a wide harmonic range. It works great for low tunings in all humbucker-equipped guitars. This passive 8-string humbucker comes in choice of a standard open-coil look or black metal humbucker cover, both in a classic passive mount that easily fits in any guitar with traditional routing. We also make it in a standard active mount size with a black soapbar cover with one row of exposed poles for a modern look.Pair with the passive Nazgl or Pegasus bridge humbuckers for a perfectly balanced metal tone.Hand built in our Santa Barbara, CA factory, the Sentient uses an alnico 5 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance.
