Fat, Full, Punchy Sound
The SPB-3 boasts a design of quarter-inch diameter pole pieces, which expand the magnetic field and extend the frequency ranges for fat, full, punchy sound with incredible mid-range presence and maximum output. Though the SPB-3 is often used for heavy rock tones, it provides great tonal versatility to an instrument with a single pickup. This pickup includes logo covers.
For Warmer Tone Ash, Alder or Basswood Body Instruments
