Tone GuideTreble: 5.5Mid: 7.5Bass: 8.0 Specs Wiring: 4 Conductor Magnet: Ceramic Output mV: 425 DC Resistance: 13.68 Kohm Year of Introduction: 1972 Patent: n/aRecommended ForThe Super Distortion® is primarily a bridge position pickup, although it can be used in the neck position with a relatively low-gain amp. Specifically designed for solid-bodies: hollow and semi-hollow guitars can be hard to control with warm, high output pickups.Tech TalkWhen we first built the Super Distortion®, it was a 1-conductor pickup. As a 4-conductor pickup, it's extremely versatile. Coil-splitting produces a very Strat®-like option, both in tone and power. Parallel wiring is similar to splitting, but it's still humbucking and a little more hollow-sounding; Paul Gilbert used to use two Super Distortion® pickups wired in parallel when he was in Racer X.
