Tight and punchy bass response with a smooth bite in the high-end define the voice of early '60s humbucker-driven rock'n'roll.

The Riff Raff humbucker is based on the shorter rough cast Alnico V PAFs of 1960, with a more symmetrical wind of 42 AWG plain enamel wire providing more focus in the upper-mids and brighter highs. While the same build standard and components of the other vintage humbuckers in the range apply, the Riff Raff delivers a more aggressive vintage tone and unmistakable rock voice. The bottom-end is deep but very controlled and coupled with the extra cut in the high-end, allow for plenty of snap and a classic range of organic, clean and driven tones.

Although voiced as a vintage rock humbucker, hard rock and metal players will enjoy the punchy and focused tone when used with hi-gain rigs.
