traditional vintage-style humbucking guitar pickups

This is a hot-rodded version of a traditional humbucker with an Alnico V bar magnet. It is slightly overwound for a nice thick midrange, yet it still retains plenty of clarity and balance. Each pickup is calibrated for it’s position, with the bridge version being considerably hotter. The neck pickup will deliver smooth, classic saturation and the bridge pickup will cut through a mix with searing presence and punch.

*now available with alnico iii (a3) magnets
alnico iii magnets differ from alnico v in that they are warmer with a softer character. think of them like a 60’s j style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. alnico v by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. as another example, we’d recommend a3 for fretless or a fat 60’s jaco type thing and a5 is great for a modern slap type thing or an r and b sound.
