TONERIDER ALNICO II CLASSIC NECK GOLD
The Alnico II Classic is a superb set for guitars that need more warmth, fullness and sustain. The earliest Gibson Patent-Applied-For (or “PAF”) pickups used a range of magnets, but PAFs made with Alnico II have always held a special place in many a guitarist’s heart.
If you have ever heard someone describe a PAF as “flute-like” or “more like a single coil than a humbucker” – that’s the Alnico II working its magic.
At higher gain settings, the Alnico II Classic really nails the fluid distortion sound of players like Slash, who use the smooth attack and longer sustain of the neck to great effect during solos, and the tighter, fizzier tones available from the bridge for rock rhythm work.
Wiring: All AC2’s come with four conductor wiring as standard for maximum flexibility.
Spacing: 99% of AC2’s we’ve made have a 50mm spacing (as measured from the centre of the low E polepiece to the centre of the high E polepiece). This 50mm spacing suits Les Paul and SG guitars well.
Baseplate: All AC2s are built with medium-length 9mm baseplate legs for easy installation in a wide variety of instruments. Baseplates are all Nickel-Silver with the Tonerider logo stamp.
