Soapbar pickup
  • A term coined from likening their rectangular, smooth (non-exposed pole) appearance to bars of soap. The reference is to the housing only and does not reflect internal construction. Housings vary in dimension and can accomodate any coil configuration. However, it is common for soapbar pickups to contain duel coilceramic pickups, such as the EMG 35DC.
