Fishman announced a whole new range of electric guitar pickups at namm this year.
They are called the Fishman Fluence pickups and are designed to give you two classic tones in one pickup and they are able to do that because they use a non wound pickup. The thing they do is use a cirquit board to replicate the wounds for a really stable and consistent sound.
I personally don’t know what to think because on one side I would like to have some classic tones but on the other side people are probably going to sound the same if they have the same guitar which is not so good in my opinion.
As I can’t really decide, what do you think?
Here is a video for the people that want to hear them in action:
The namm show ends tomorrow so I will try to post as much of the new pickups that are released at namm as I can find as soon as possible, so stay tuned!
Thanks for the addition! (:
Well first off I would recommend to check out of there is a centre block in your guitar or if it is completely hollow by just removing one pickup. (I guess it has got a centre block) And if there is a centre block you could consider routing the body to fit a p90. But if you want to go the easy way and not route your body for a p90 you could get a single coil that kind of sounds like a p90. (you can’t get something that exactly sounds like a p90 because it just is not a p90) Some single coils with p90 sounds are: The lace sensor purple, Harmonic Design Super 90, Rio Grande ‘Dirty Harry’ or the Lindy Fralin steel poled pickups but I would recommend that you do a little research yourself because there are more pickup manufacturers out there.
I hope it helps you a bit!
Awesome, I like classic tele’s!
