The Saturday Night Special pickup set uses Alnico 4 magnets to deliver that authentic '70s sound. These pickups bridge the output level gap between vintage 50s and modern humbuckers.
Unlike traditional P.A.F.s, the Saturday Night Special humbuckers are voiced to be a little hotter and fatter in the bridge position, and a little clearer and less “wooly” in the neck. They’re more aggressive than '50s-style models, but without the compression of most high gain pickups. This pickup set is perfect for replicating those legendary late-'70s arena rock tones.
The Saturday Night Special Set is made in Santa Barbara, California on the same Leesona pickup-winding machine that made the original P.A.F.s in Kalamazoo. Comes standard with four-conductor wiring, maple spacer and short mounting legs.
Also sold as separate neck and bridge pickups.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special Pickup Set:
I bought a PRS Custom 24 SE not too long ago and while I liked the way it played, the stock pickups were uninspiring. I've always wanted to try pickups with an A4 magnet, so when these were released, I decided to give them a shot. I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase. To my ears the A4 is the best of both worlds between the sweetness an A2 and the focus/tightness of an A5 magnet.
