Better than conventional humbuckers for the Neck position because of minimized blur and mush factor. The 30% under-wound Extra Vintage has sweeter highs and more tone with detailed piano tones midrange than regular Vintage or PAF humbuckers, thanks to Kinman’s Triple Alnico Tone advantage. Nicely touch sensitive and responsive expression. Sweet brilliant highs and Pinch harmonics literally jump out. Split single coil sound is the secret weapon of the Extra Vintage, very strong Strat like with almost the same loudness as the non-split mode. Also noticeably less hum than regular humbuckers.
