Developed for Steve Vai.

Steve wanted one of his instruments to have a fat, classic humbucker sound to contrast with his hotter Evolution-equipped guitars, hence the Breed. The Breed is a bit louder and fatter-sounding than the PAF Pros. It works especially well with the ToneZone, Super Distortion, and Evolution. It features standard 4-conducter wiring, Alnico 5 magnets, and 325mV output. It is generally recommended as a neck pickup for bolt-on trem guitars and in the bridge position on set-neck, fixed-bridge instruments.
