70s Super D

$ 100.00

Classic Overdrive

The Manlius 70s Super D is a faithful recreation of early Super Distortion pickups.  Built with exacting spec - hex head 'grub' screw poles, period correct magnet wire, period correct outputs, ceramic magnets, brass baseplate, and braided two conductor lead wire (4 conductor available).

Punchy lead tones with enough power to push most any amp, the 70s Super D is a great fit for harder 70s and 80s style rock.  Hot tones with great punch and definition.

Vintage examples have been used by a wide variety of players and bands, from early Maiden to Kiss - even the Grateful Dead for a period (!), the versatility of this pickup is excellent, especially for a medium high output pickup.

Built by hand in Syracuse NY, the 70's Super D features classic Manlius design elements, including hand scatter-winding, american sourced magnets, vintage steel alloy parts, universal depth base-plate legs, maple spacers, and light wax potting for consistent performance.
