– PETE THORN
WARMTH. CLARITY. OPENNESS.
Pete has always been inspired by the “hot PAF into a cranked plexi” tones a legendary guitarist used to create magic in the 70’s and 80’s. This new design starts with our special Thornbucker wind, with a few more turns on the coil, up to 9k, paired with an Alnico II magnet. The Alnico II gives more of a warm top-end that perfectly blends with a high-gain, British sound. The result is high-notes have a body and openness, without too much top-end. Warmth, power, sweetness and clarity.
