Seymour Duncan tells us that the Sentient is a neck pickup which pairs equally well with the Pegasus (for prog rock and modern metal) and the Nazgûl (for aggressive metal). They say that it's voiced to capture a blend of vintage PAF and modern tones with enough output to deliver harmonically rich distorted lead tones, but subtle enough to give you deep, detailed cleans.
A spokesperson told us, "Think of it as combining the best qualities of the '59 Model and the Jazz: clarity, detail, depth, attack and expression."
The Sentient is available for both 7 and 8 string guitars and also comes in an active mount (soapbar sized) version for those who own a guitar that came with active pickups.
The Sentient can be heard in the video below during the clean intro.
