~~Item Description~~
Dragonfire Guardians are warm, well balanced and robust without being over the top. These pickups are wound just right for smooth, classic performance. The Guardians are passive humbucker pickups offering solid and strong vintage tones with the timeless and traditional creaminess of AlNiCo V magnet performance. For authentic vintage tone, midrange focus and solid character, these are an excellent choice.

These are wax potted, vintage wound pickups with an Alnico 5 magnet style for vibrant yet classic humbucker performance. The alnico magnets in these pickups provide faithful vintage sound while maintaining treble performance. Guardians feature 1 row of slug / flat top style polepieces and 1 row of regulating screw style polepieces so 6 polepieces on each pickup are adjustable for adaptability and personality. Standard color and covered pickup cover styles are available; covered styles add about 1mm in overall size and leave only the 6 adjustable poles exposed.

These calibrated humbuckers are 4-wire so you can coil-split and add series parallel options for even more versatility. In single coil mode, this humbucker performs smoothly and can easily meet your needs for split humbucker sound.

For high-end performance, we recommend using 500K pots and 0.047 tone caps (available separately). Choose a single humbucker bridge pickup, a single humbucker neck pickup or a matched HH pickup set that is collaborative so the pickups will work in conjunction with one another for the best possible performance.
