About the Pickups in this Guitar
The V63+ started with John's V63 design and he overwound it, creating a hotter pickup with more output and incredibly rich tone. Previously referred to as the "ML", Suhr updated the name to help players better understand the tonal response and sound. The V63+ pickups offer a balance of tight lows, focused midrange and smooth top-end sparkle. V63+ pickups incorporate a modified staggered pole piece design to provide an even magnetic field needed to accommodate instruments with flatter neck radiuses and today’s string gauges.

The SSV Humbucker in the bridge has a broad sonic aperture with very little compression, making for a dynamic, vintage output humbucker. The SSV is a versatile pickup that combines the warmth of a vintage humbucker with increased clarity and definition. The SSV Bridge is wound a bit hotter for more output, increased sustain and a sweet midrange response.
