    SGD neodymium sidewinder in an EMG-35 sized enclosure (3.5" X 1.5"). This size is more typical for 4-string basses, but it uses a single blade (not individual poles) and can be used with any string arrangement and spacing up to 2.95" (75mm). It shows some string wear on top, but is otherwise in good working condition.

    As a sidewinder, it's a noise-cancelling pickup, but the two coils are on their sides and share a single blade that senses a narrow portion of the string (i.e. narrow aperture), like a single coil pickup.

    The previous owner described the sound well, so I'll use his description: "Medium high output. Lots of authority in the lows and low mids. Still warm through the high mid and highs, with a little more snap up top. It was wound as a bridge pickup. While it does make a great bridge pickup, I actually used it a lot as a neck pickup. I think it is a more well rounded pickup."

    The only thing I would add is that it's voiced more modern than vintage, and it responds well to hand position adjustment and passive tone controls.
