XOTIC Raw Vintage Pickups.
Each pickup is handmade with one result in mind, warm vintage tone. Xotic's extensive research accurately reproduces that iconic classic tone so many seek. Clarity, note separation, warmth..TONE!!
Xotic put these pickups through the paces; Spent countless hours of research & development using multiple amps, pedals & many combinations. Hand assembled in sunny Southern California, the RV-50 pickups are built with Alnico 5 magnets, single Formvar Copper wire, vintage style push back cloth leads and dipped in a layers of lacquer and wax. The result is an amazingly pure sound and a clarity that perfectly compliments the natural tone and harmonics of the guitar.
THE RAW VINTAGE PICKUPS CONTRIBUTE TO A FULL "OPEN" SOUND AND TIGHTNESS WITH A SWEET SPANKY HIGH END, FIRM LOWS, AND MIDS WITH A GREAT COMPLEXITY AND A PUNCHY ATTACK.
THE RV-50 AND RV-60 CLASSIC PICKUPS ARE CAREFULLY HAND WOUND AT XOTIC'S LOS ANGELES FACILITY
