Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character.
Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character.
Traditional vintage-style humbucking guitar pickups
Narrow spaced standard humbucker. One row screws and one row slugs. Alnico V bar magnet. Standard wind for Neck, Hot wind for Bridge.
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.
