The pickups in this guitar are based on the amazing 85/15 pickups that have recently been used in all of the American Core line models. Paul Reed Smith has said that these would have been the perfect pickups back in 1985 because they're hot enough to give you all of the gain tones you want but they clean up beautifully too. They offer crystal clean tones but without sounding harsh or spiky.
In the bridge it has high output with great articulation in the midrange. The neck pickup is a lower output level but works really well with crunch tones as well as smooth lead tones.
