If you look at the DC Resistance specs for these pickups, you will see they're very similar to PAF style models. However, their performance is very different in two important areas. They have less power and much more treble responce than vintage humbuckers. In fact, treble response is comparable to that of typical single coils, but since bass response is still very solid, the EJ Custom isn't thin sounding. It's outstanding for chords and fingerpicking and has exceptional definition for soloing even with extreme amounts of distortion. Alnico 5 magnets. Recommended for all positions, solid, semi-solid, and hollow body electric guitars. Specifications;
