The Area '61 captures the tonal bedrock of the Texas blues sound. Like the Area '58 the Area '61 really responds to different pick attacks: played hard, it sounds louder and tougher than you'd expect from a vintage pickup, but it cleans up immediately by picking softer or rolling down the volume control. And like the Area '58, its ability to cancel hum is superior to full-size humbuckers.
The Area '61 is good in all three positions. It's the perfect bridge pickup with a pair of Area '58 pickups if you want to go all the way from Nashville to Texas in one guitar.
