New Blues Hot Alnico V Antique Nickel Humbucker Pickup
This is hands down the best value humbucker available. Highest quality construction, made in Korea in the same factory that makes pickups for major brands. We have both neck and bridge position available, and oh yeah, we're including the plastic mounting rings!
These are quite different from the standard New Blues series. They're powerful, pulling ~8.8K Neck and ~17K bridge. The Alnico V magnet provides a more clear and distinct sound, giving you more tonally sonic options. These can be super loud, but react to subtle changes in your guitar volume control, much like the old PAFs. This means you can dial in pretty much any humbucker tone.
The worn nickel finish looks antique without looking "aged." Perfectly at home on a vintage guitar.
These are wax potted, and come with 4-conductor wire, making it possible to split the coils. You're not going to find a better deal for a high-quality humbucker pickup complete with mounting rings!
