SVT12B Bridge – Polished Gold
The Supro Vistatone pickup is an authentic replica of the groundbreaking single-coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s, and made famous by musicians such as Link Wray, David Bowie, Robert Smith, Dan Auerbach and Jack White.
The Vistatone pickup is cited as “prior art” by Seth Lover in his famous patent for the Gibson “PAF” Humbucker. The Vistatone pickup has a huge fat tone that works exceptionally well with fuzz pedals and overdriven tube amps. The bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the neck pickup, which is reversewound for hum-cancelling operation when combined with the bridge unit.
