Application
Like a higher output '59 Model with a deeper bottom end and expanded output. Perfect for pop, country, blues, classic rock and heavy rock. Trembuckers have a slightly wider pole spacing to match many popular tremolo bridge's string spacing.

Description
Developed by contributors to our web user group who replaced the ceramic or Alnico 2 magnet in an SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom Custom with an Alnico 5. Compared to the SH-5 and SH-11, the Custom 5's tone is more vintage, with less distortion, but it's still very strong and powerful. Clean sounds are rich and full with enhanced presence. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

Complete setup
Recommended for bridge position. Often a Custom 5 is paired with a '59 for real-deal P.A.F. tones in the neck.

Guitars
For balanced and warm instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

Available mods
Nickel or gold-plated cover. Standard string spacing available.

Players
Paul Stanley / KISS, Troy VanLeeuwen, Queens of the Stone Age, Bruce Kulick / Grand Funk Railroad & Union

Cable: 4 Conductor

Custom 5
This pickup is amazing.  This is a medium output humbucker, and works very well running through high gain amps.  I have not played it through any other amps, but it really lets my Mesa Triple Rectifier flourish.  My guitar is an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, and a floyd rose.  In my opinion it has a neutral sound, so what you hear is all amp.  It can be warm, crunchy, smooth, whatever.  a great pickup for anything, really.
