The result of collaboration between John Suhr and rock guitarist extraordinaire Doug Aldrich, the Aldrich humbuckers are the ultimate high-output pickups for aggressive rock style of playing. The Aldrich bridge humbucker is now Suhr's highest output pickup but it oozes tone across its sound spectrum. It is big sounding yet focused and punchy in the mids and tight in the lows. You will never hear this pickup get flubby and undefined in the highest gain settings. The high-mids will cut through like the sharpest knife but the treble will be sweet and never grating on the ears. From chunky low-string metal riffing to screaming string bends in the high register, the Aldrich bridge humbucker covers them all while retaining the dynamics of your picking attack.
For The Perfect Set
The Aldrich neck humbucker is the perfect complement to the Aldrich bridge pickup. The Aldrich neck pickup has been carefully calibrated for the neck position and to also match the output of the Aldrich bridge pickup. This is Suhr's highest output neck humbucker pickup but it never gets muddy or undefined. The Aldrich neck humbucker retains the clear string-to-string balance with warmth in the mids, tight and clear lows, and sweet singing highs. Whether its chunky crunch rhythm sounds, sweet bluesy leads or fluid high-gain lead sounds you need from a neck humbucker, the Aldrich delivers in spades and then some.
DC Resistance: 17.5K ohms for the bridge position, 9K ohms for the neck position, 4-conductor wire
Aldrich Bridge Pickups available in the Fender-Style Trem Spacing (53mm) and Gibson-Style Spacing (50mm)

- Amazing Pickup!!! Review by pwrmac7600
Features Value Quality
It is an extremely articulate pickup, has a great thump when distorted, great clarity, and sounds stellar clean.
I normally stay away from signature models of anything, as I don't buy into the signature model hype of paying more because someone's name is connected to it. Which is the great thing about these pickups, they cost considerably less than all the boutique pickups I had tried in search of a tone I could love, and IMO blow them all out of the water.
Quality of construction is outstanding. Built solid, with quality components. If I had to say one negative about them, I would be stretching to say I just wish the cream color in the zebras better matched Gibson's cream color. But hey, for the tone I get, I can deal!!!!
If you are a hard rock and or metal player, buy these now! you will not regret it. (Posted on 3/7/2015)
