The Gravity Storm™ Neck & Bridge Model pickups were designed for Steve Vai, and are the next step in his pickup evolution. The pickups are named after a song on his album, Steve Vai: The Story of Light. Steve described the sound he wanted from his new Gravity Storm™ Bridge Model pickup as “a thundering cloud of ice cream”.

Most neck humbuckers don’t do a great job at reproducing pick harmonics, especially if they have a warm sound. This one’s different, particularly with 24-fret guitars.
