Artec Vintage Alnico V Humbucker Pickups

Fantastic Vintage sound at a great price

A classic pickup, offering timeless tone and subtle warmth with a full, even response. Capable of grinding, punchy Blues & Rock, and lovely rolled-off cleans.

Utilising an AlNiCo magnet producing a more open and dynamic tone than can be found with typical ceramic magnets. AlNiCo V magnets to provide a more powerful, attacking tone with a full bottom-end. This set has a balanced output, and avoids the pitfalls of many 'over-wound' pickups that can mask a guitars natural character.

A classic all-rounder with a quality of tone you’d expect to hear on Custom Shop instruments, at a realistic price-point. Perfect for your upgrade or custom build project.

The pickup seems ok but I cant try it properly as the volume pot needs changing now. The main problem was that being a bit smaller than the original (Guyatone Les Paul) I had to make a new surround mounting and re-position the holes a bit.

Brilliant pickup, brilliant price

Really nice pickup, sounds great, mostly good quality except the wires which are a tad finicky. No reason not to buy it tho

Hi, you are ahead of me, as yet I haven't had chance to fit the humbuckers
but as soon as I have I will let you know. Cheers

Great budget option!

This is a capable pickup for people on a budget, 4 conductor wire, neatly made. Sound is full and warm as per alnico 5 pickups. Wires are very thin, that’s my only real complaint. Don’t expect Seymour Duncan quality for this price.
