First off, here is the exterior.

Digression and Summary #009 Spec Introduction

Now, #009 is an ST 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 use of thick copper wire, which is a standard feature. It gives the impression of being a standard, high-quality specification with a modest resistance value.

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 a typical ST pickup. It will be on sale, so if you are interested, please consider purchasing it.
