Revolutionary Stereo Pickups
Under the AJ100CE’s compensated saddle is Shadow’s proprietary NanoFlex™, low-impedance pickup. Unlike a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics that not only pick up string vibrations, but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos. Complimenting the NanoFlex™ is the revolutionary NanoMag™ pickup mounted at the harmonic-rich end of the fingerboard. Exclusively from Shadow, the NanoMag™ features three Samarian-Cobalt magnets and an integrated active circuit to capture all the highs and lows, including a wide range of harmonics. With your choice of either 1/4" mono output blending both pickups or 1/4" stereo output splitting the two pickups, you have incredible flexibility and opportunities to create the perfect acoustic tone live!
