Smooth Operator™ is a humbucker with a true vintagecharacter. This popular pickup has been in production since 2003.
This pickup has medium output, the treble is warmer compared with the Modern Vintage model. The midrange is full and literally dripping of tone ready to jump into your amp. The Smooth Operator is built around an Alnico 2 magnet of the vintage correct " PAF-lenght" of 63,5 mm. Since Alnico 2 has a softer magnetic field than the more frequenly used Alnico 5, it lets your strings vibrate more freely and you will get more sustain. It is wound with the darkbrown Plain Enamel wire for right sound and look.(not shown in picture) The overall tone is smoother with less sharp edges and your instruments natural wooden tone shines through. Standard is 50 mm and short legs. This pickup has been made for some of my most demanding customers for some time. Now it can be made for you as bridge or neck model, or as a calibrated set of two.
"We are in the studio right now recording the new album, using Heaven 57® pickups.They sound amazing. We've also, since long, been using playing Smooth Opeartors playing live and both sets of pickups are really great. Quality."
