Extreme power made extremely flexible.

The neck model is designed to produce a highly focused attack centered on the upper midrange, with less magnet pull and output to balance perfectly with the bridge model. The D Activator-X Neck model features a universal spacing for both standard and F-spaced applications.

Recommended For: Either position.

Tech Talk: As you can see from the specs, the D Activator-X Neck Model has a lot less output than the Bridge Model. What is often forgotten is that strings generate much more output voltage over the neck position because they vibrate more strongly there than over the bridge position, so the neck and bridge models actually balance very well with each other. The neck model also has a weaker magnetic field, so it doesn't interfere with sustain or intonation. Both models were primarily designed for heavy music, but they're also very good for clean, bright sounds in split and parallel modes.
