The Virtual Vintage 1954 Pro pickup uses the same ground breaking technology as the Area 58 and Area 61 pickups. The 54 Pro replaces the Virtual Vintage 54 and Virtual 2 middle pickups. It has a warm, smoky sound, fattens up when you pick hard, and has a special grade of Alnico 2 magnet to reduce string pull. And like all of the Virtual Vintage models, it's dead quiet.
The DP408 pickup is recommended for all positions.
Tech Talk: The major difference between the 54 Pro and the Area 61 is in pick attack.
The 54 Pro has a fatter, woody tone, and the sound almost seems to compress when picked hard. Blues players favor this type of sound for the way it fattens up solos, particularly in the bridge position. The DP408 pickup is also good in the neck and middle positions to warm up bright-sounding guitars.
Magnet: Alnico 2
