Humbucker guitar pickup for bridge position from Blackouts series that is designed specifically for those serious metal players who will accept nothing less than our highest output active bridge pickup. It is the reincarnation of Seymour Duncan’s original LiveWire Metal humbucker. With its infamous brain melting output level and headroom, this pickup is so hot that it has an added feature that gives provides access to a second, moderate, output level. It comes from the factory with a slide-on shunt connecting the two pins: simply remove the shunt and the pickup will be in moderate output mode. The two pins can be also run to a push-pull or mini-toggle switch so it allows you to switch between the two output levels for a built-in boost switch. This pickup is thick and crunchy, and will provide a massively saturated distortion tone with tons of string sensitivity. It comes with pots, hardware, quick-connector cables, capacitor (active pickups require a special cap value), output jack, battery clip, and wire needed for installation. If the guitar already has active pickups with quick-connector cables installed, you should be able to simply unplug them and plug in this model. Black cover.
