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.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special Pickup:
Just installed the SNS in my new Chapman ML-1 and all I can say is WOW!
These pickups compliment this guitar (mahogany w/maple top, ebony board, 24 frets) perfectly! Not too much bass, not too middy, not shrill on top - juuuuuust right.
I also like the slight open wah / vowel sound in the in-between position. It gives it an interesting flavor but doesn't overpower the natural sound of the guitar.
The balance is nice too. Slightly underwound neck + slightly overwound bridge = awesome!
