Primarily for the bridge position to add some power for the bridge position. Throaty mids. A pickup wound with a thinner copper wire compared to the Vertigo. This model has also much more turns of copperwire than our Vertigo model. The mids are more pronounced compared to the vintage model with less treble. The Hot Bridge in the bridge position together with the vintage model Vertigo pickup in the neck position is a dream team/combination.
