The Alchemy Rapier is a pin-point accurate, bright and lively pickup, suitable for a wide variety of sounds, and distinct due to it's wax-potting process. Powered by AlNiCo V magnets in both the bridge and neck positions, and with a hotter-than-vintage output to help control the treble, the Rapiers are only potted at the baseplate to prevent microphonics, leaving the coils unpotted for a more dynamic and lively sound, with tons of natural brightness. The Rapiers were intended to recreate to electric sound of 60s and 70s classic rock, but with their more modern output are still at home in slightly higher gain applications, and have the treble controlled sufficiently to achieve a great, edgy blues sound.
