The Bartolini PBF-55 is a moderate output humbucker neck pickup that is well suited for both Jazz and Rock. The PBF-55 provides the same focused lows of the PBF-49 Vintage pickup, but with a softer, more rounded, warmer, more diffuse attack. Highly recommended for Jazz and Jazz/Rock applications, or for smoothing out the harshness of some heavier solid bodies.
The PBF-55 is commonly used in the neck position with a PBF-57 in the bridge for jazz, or with a PBF-77D in the bridge for rock. Rock or Jazz tone: creamy smooth treble, excellent mids, crisply defined bass response.
Bartolini pickups are precision magnetic transducers designed and manufactured to bring out the fullest response from electric guitars and basses. Each pickup is hand assembled from selected materials and carefully tested for output level, square wave response, hum level and microphonics. All Bartolini pickups carry a one year warranty for defects in workmanship or materials.
