The SAVX Set has all the tone, clarity, and responsiveness guitar players demand in a single coil pickup with a vintage look enthusiasts will love. With its flat Alnico V pole pieces, the SAVX Set is designed for newer instruments with a flatter fretboard radius. The tone is modeled after the early Stratâ„¢ pickups, giving players that familiar "quack," punch, and bell like tone. With the X series preamp, these pickups take on even more dynamic response, bridging the gap between passive and active.This marriage of vintage design and state of the art electronics gives the SAVX Set a much smoother tonal response when played clean or with overdrive. If you're looking for quiet single coil pickups with a vintage look and sound, the SAVX Set is a perfect choice. Using the EMG Solderless wiring makes installing these pickups hassle free.

Lefty install

John /Reviewed 6/1/2014

I will clarify at the start that this set is pretty easy to install, for a lefty, with a very simple modification to the 5-way switch, and not the guitar body as someone reviewed somewhere. The 5-way is fitted just like on a right-handed with all the connectors facing into the cavity and simply transpose the pickup connections i.e. bridge to neck and neck to bridge and then everything works as normal 1 thru 5.
Sound wise I like them, very close in character to the passives I pulled out of my '59 with the added benefits of an EXG/SPC and noiseless signal for my pedal board.
They have a weirdly pleasant combination of organic and HiFi quality, so not sterile, with position 2 giving a very Jimi tone and still having buckets of twang and girth in 5.
I like them for my slide work!
