A modern reincarnation of PAF-style pickups, with modern output and an innovative design, but with the cleans and classic rock tones of the originals. Made with an AlNiCo V flanked by an AII spacer magnet in the bridge, and an AlNiCo II flanked by a small AV spacer in the neck, the Alchemy Elixir have the soul of PAF pickups, with enough power to handle all modern applications, from progressive cleans, to technical, accurate soloing, to death metal riffs. However, when played with plexi-style distortion, the Alchemy Elixirs will break up and drive an amp like a classic output pickup – given the higher magnet pull countering the higher wind – giving a classic rock crunch unrivalled by modern, high output pickups. A great, balanced set, with unbalanced coils for complex cleans, great coil splits, and a fantastic middle position sound, with the brightness in the bridge, and warmth in the neck one would expect from a classic pickup set.
Magnets: Bridge - AlNiCo V (AII spacer), Neck - AlNiCo II (AV spacer)
Coil Wire: 0.05mm
All humbuckers available with vintage braided wiring to allow for ease of installation, or modern 4 conductor wiring to allow for coil splitting etc.
