Transition Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Lukather and Luke's new LIII™ Music Man guitar. The pickups are named after Steve’s new album, Transition (release date January 21, 2013). Lukather played the LIII™ guitar with Transition™ pickups throughout the new record. The passive Transition™ humbuckers are both subtle and tough. They have power and they have depth. Steve says they’re organic, and they allow him to own his sound. “These days I like it simple and direct,” he shares. Steve says he's started over sonically and is into a more organic sound these days, but the Transition™ Bridge Model has a tough, in-your-face sound that's also perfect for shredding and technical playing.
Tech TalkA powerful magnet and coils tuned to slightly different frequencies create very strong fundamental tones, with sustained notes that resolve easily to first- and second-order harmonics. The output rating isn’t as high as our loudest models, but the Transition™ Bridge Model puts a lot of impact into every picked note.
