The most versatile Tonerider humbucker set! The perfect vintage hybrid buckers!

Although this set is not so popular among guitar players, many guitar builders/customisers rely on them, including myself! As Tonerider describes this set themselves, it's the perfect vintage hybrid set. It keeps the feel of a vintage PAF, but also hands you a little more power at your control. The neck pickup is smooth and warm, without loosing definition, so it offers both warmth and clarity, treats often looked for in a neck humbucker. The bridge is very articulate and clear sounding and still offers controlable power at your command. Some people may say the bridge lacks bass frequencies and therefore is somewhat shrill sounding. That's because you really should re-EQ your amp and pedals after installing a Rocksong in the bridge. You can surely dial in the bass without loosing the clarity and definition! It does surely "thump" with the right amp settings! This all makes for a very versatil humbucker set that retains PAF-sound and also offers more power when needed. This set is touch sensitive and lets you control the sound with your pick attack, soft playing results in a very friendly sound, digging in deep, you'll get them to sound raunchy and meaner in the right way. A very recommendable set that is often missunderstood! Remember to play with the EQ of your amp/pedals to dial in the right sound, especially for the bridge bucker and you'll open all sound options on this set! More than recommended! If you want a very versatile humbucker set that retains the classic PAF-vibe with added power when you want/need it, look no further! Tonerider remains my go to brand for pickups!!

Recommend for sure!

Just fit Rocksongs to my Ibanez AS53 semihollow. Wow! What an amazing transformation. The stock pickup muddiness has disappeared completely and the guitar sounds beautifully clear and smooth when played gently, and absolutely growls at higher gains. These are brilliant pickups and I would wholeheartly recommend them to anyone.

Rocksong in the neck of my Les Paul along with a Generator in the bridge, the thing sings beautifully and you can really get fantastic solo tones, i was torn between this and the Alnico 2 but the overwinding definitely enticed me and I havent looked back. Tonerider currently installed my 2 main guitars and will be put into the rest

Great sound and great tone!

Great sound and great tone!
I bought these pickups because I didn’t like Seymour Duncan’s abuse with the price and I had read very positive reviews of these pickups…..a great purchase! Clear and crisp sound, great rock tone. As a curiosity, I will say that I did a blind test with my wife and my daughter with 3 Epiphone Les Pauls with different pickups (SD Slash pro, SD hot rodded and these tonerider rocksong) and they both liked the sound of the tonerider better with the same configuration on guitar and amplifier.
Cheers from Spain!
