Overview of #008

First off, here is the exterior.

This is a JB pickup made from the same material as #006.

Digression and Summary #008 Spec Introduction

Now, #008 is a JB pickup, and this one also has no cover.

Although it has a unique appearance, the inside is made to standard specifications.

The coverless design allows for non-contact processing and the standard thick copper wire to coexist. It gives the impression of being a standard, high-quality product.

When combined with Alnico 5, it has excellent sound response, and the potting process has been selected to slightly enhance the mids.

While the blue design is playful, I think the specifications are not too far off from the typical JB. It will be on sale, so if you are interested, I would appreciate it if you would consider purchasing it.
