This is split coil version of an original P style pickup. It delivers all the vintage style tone, but the split coil design allows for quiet operation.
Raw pickup without cover.
Also available with Alnico III 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 Alnico III for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and Alnico V is great for a modern slap type thing or an R & B sound.
Please Note:Nordstrand supplies chrome screws with their pickups. If you require black or gold screws, we carry them on our pickup screws page.
