The Vampissima has a construction that is half way between a Firebird pickup and a deluxe mini humbucker. A Firebird AL 5 magnet as a blade in one bobbin, polepieces in the other and a plated steel baseplate as a magnetic conductor. This results in a pickup with good articulation and clarity, combined with the low profile for fitting to an unrouted hollowbody guitar.
The Vampissima is wound using AWG 42 wire, in the style of the traditional vintage Johnny Smith pickups. The Vampissima offers an exceptional combination of clarity and sweetness.
It is available with either a neck bracket or a LH / RH pickguard mount. The pickup has an overall height of 13.5mm, allowing it to be fitted to most hollow bodied jazz guitars without routing.
