During his tenure in Testament, Alex Skolnick helped pioneer the Bay Area Thrash sound – and he has continuously expanded his repertoire of styles following his departure. Whether playing solo, with his jazz trio, or in the re-united Testament, his playing and tone continues to inspire us.
Designed in conjunction with Alex, this humbucker set is tweaked to perfectly recreate his tone, from expressive melodies to aggressive palm muting. The neck is a vintage output, PAF style humbucker with an Alnico V magnet; the tone is rich and articulate. The bridge is wound hot, with a voicing that emphasizes punchy midrange, and rich harmonics.
