Built exclusively for 8 string players, the Sentient neck pickup is the perfect neck pickup for natural, complex warmth and tight articulation. With an Alnico 5 magnet and medium strength coils, the blend of vintage PAF and modern tones sounds excellent in both clean and high gain settings.
Use with any 8 string Seymour Duncan bridge pickup. Works especially well with a Pegasus 8-String pickup in the bridge position (for Progressive Rock and Modern Metal), or the Nazgul (for aggressive metal). Best with bright to semi-warm woods (from Maple to Korina) with either Maple or Rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Aaron Marshall (Intervals), Keith Merrow, Jason Frankhouser.
