About This Item

Build or repair pickups with these authentic '50s parts! Just like the originals!

Dimensions:
2-1/2" x 1/2" x 1/8"
(63.5mm x 12.7mm x 3.175mm)

Choose Alnico 5 or Alnico 2 magnets:
Alnico 2 magnets give a warmer tone and low end response with smooth, singing highs. Many builders use them in the bridge pickups of solidbodies.
Alnico 5 produces a brighter tone with a tighter low end and stinging highs. They're great for neck position pickups, to help keep the tone clear without getting muddy.

The Alnico 2 magnets are marked red on one end to tell them apart from Alnico 5's. Supplied with full magnetic charge. Sold individually.

Got 2 x A5s to replace ceramics on a MMK45 and a 500t and worked excellent.

Honk instead of ice pick

By
(Customer's Reviews)


For just a few bucks, this little alnico 2 bar changed the sound in an Asian HSH Strat quite pleasantly. The bridge pickup originally had an alnico 5 mag in it and BOY was it ice picky! It was a $200 guitar so what the heck. I put the StewMac alnico 2 bar in it and left it unpotted. Has a nice little "honk" to it now instead of ice picks in your ear. Didn't really lose output either. Thanks again Stew Mac.

Magnets make difference

After reading some articles about influence of different magnets on pickup sound I decided to give it a try with this Alnico magnet. I was surprised how much the change met my expectation. That was what I needed.
