what's the difference?


Recommended Posts

the classic has ceramic pickups that very high output and many people find them harsh sounding. the Classic antique has a 57' classic in the neck and a 57' classic plus in the bridge, both of these pickups are low output alinco II magnets and most people prefer this combo. the standards have Burstbucker pro's, which have alnico V magnets which are a little more output than the alnico II's, so it is kind of inbetween the 57's and the ceramics. also all of these models are chambered which makes the sound a little brighter.
