SUHR THORNBUCKER II PETE THORN SIGNATURE PICKUP
The all-new Thornbucker II bridge pickup is the latest evolution of Pete’s signature Suhr pickup. A new wind, a new magnet, a new signature Pete Thorn tone. Retaining the warmth and clarity of the original Thornbucker, yet adding a powerful punch and full-spectrum body. This new design can be found in Pete’s new Signature Standard HSS and now is available for order.
WARMTH. CLARITY. OPENNESS.
Pete has always been inspired by the “hot PAF into a cranked plexi” tones a legendary guitarist used to create magic in the 70’s and 80’s. This new design starts with our special Thornbucker wind, with a few more turns on the coil, up to 9k, paired with an Alnico II magnet. The Alnico II gives more of a warm top-end that perfectly blends with a high-gain, British sound. The result is high-notes have a body and openness, without too much top-end. Warmth, power, sweetness and clarity.
