OUR TAKE ON THE EVER POPULAR PAF TONE

Not all guitars are created equal. Some just don't have the tightness and clarity that you expect, especially with lower output pickps.

The Tonerider AC4 is a matched humbucker set that is pick sensitive, rich in harmonics and with a tight bass.

The Alnico 4 Classics Set began life as a rumour. We'd heard for years that some boutique makers were sourcing Alnico 4, and player response was great. At least one famous pickup maker claimed they couldn't tell the difference between Alnico 4 and Alnico 2.

To develop the AC4, we used a great Gibson Historic Les Paul that had the perfect maple and mahogany combination that makes specially voiced Les Paul-style guitars.

We made a few of these pickups back in 2007 and they quickly became favourites, and launched them into our standard range in 2008. The Alnico II Classic set in Nickel is currently our bestselling humbucker.

Covers: Available in black or zebra open coils, or with highly-polished gold or silver nickel covers.

Spacing: All AC-series humbuckers use 50mm spacing, as measured from the center of the low E to the centre of the high E polepieces.
