$109 single, or $199 set (set boxes are signed by Gus G), is your absolute final/total here for the Blackfire Pickups Proteus from Gus G. (Proteus pickups wired as active require guitars with guitar cord inputs shaped like those on Strats).




The Blackfire Pickups Proteus is the first humbucker guitar pickup designed by guitarist Gus G (Firewind, Ozzy) and his team, in order to match his needs for his Metal playing style, that requires powerful rich tone and expressive feel. Proteus pickups can be used and wired as passive or active ( Proteus pickups wired as active require guitars with guitar cord inputs shaped like those on Strats). They also come with a high output, low-noise preamp that gives enough kick and distortion, with well balanced EQ and rich harmonics, that respond perfectly to picking attack and dynamics. Proteus is available in matte black (non-shiny) or chrome (shiny).
