The Shelby Speed System gives you tones reminiscent of classic rockers like Dire Straits and Pink Floyd. The flat-matched Alnico II magnets give you a sweet, smooth responsive tone yet punch with attack when you drive them. These hotter wound pickups also yield increased sustain through the mid-range frequency thus balancing out your overall sound. You get nice balanced system over a very broad range of music. The N-Tune Tuner is on-board to make life just a little easier. Pull up on the volume and start tuning, it's that easy. Push down on the volume and you're ready to rock.
