The king of what? Of The Blues of course! If you only play Blues and nothing but Blues, this Alnico 2 humbucker pickup is for you. The bridge pickup is reasonably powerful, so as to bring out your solos. On the other side, the neck is round and open sounding with more dynamic. The Alnico 2 magnet provides true vintage character with a higher output level than the Alnico 3 and slightly less than the Alnico 4. It will be very comfortable on an ES-335 and its different lines, bringing warmth and roundness. If you want to play a little more than blues, you will be able to go on CLassic ROck and hard rock territories without problem.
