Fishman Open Core Fluence Classic Humbucker Pickup

Get classic humbucker depth, single-coil snap, plus sounds you didn't even know existed before, with the Fishman Open Core Fluence Classic humbucker.
The Fishman Open Core Fluence Classic Humbucker 6-String Electric Guitar Pickups are available in the popular uncovered humbucker look. They also incorporate a third voice: single coil. Wound humbuckers, when "split" to create a single coil sound, can be weak and unconvincing. Voice 3 is a truly authentic single coil tone that only Fluence technology can deliver.

Features

- Multi-Voice. Set and forget, or wire up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices.
- Drop right in and replace standard humbucker pickups.
- Rechargeable on your guitar. Optional lithium-ion battery pack offers weeks, not hours, of playing time.

- Voice 1: Vintage P.A.F. The ideal, elusive P.A.F. neck tone with the dynamics and output level you want.
- Voice 2: Clear, airy chime. A Fluence-exclusive neck tone, with unreal highs, vocal midrange, and tight lows.

"Great Sounding Passive Tones With Active Clarity And No Compression"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was very skeptical about these. I had SD Blackouts on my guitar and wanted a JB or 59/Custom and an SSL6. After listening online to JB comparisons and seeing several Greg Koch videos where he states, and you can hear, there is no active pickup compression, and that they feel like passive pickups, I pulled the trigger on these insteadI am very happy I did. It gets a very close to JB tone, but better; more round and defined and even. Just really great. It reminds me of my Blackouts but open without the compression. Exactly what I was looking for. icing on top is the PAF voicing which is great to have and a single coil voice that is very close to my Strat bridge, no a weak and over-bright harsh mess tapped humbuckers usually are.The volume knob works! For real! You turn it down and it cleans up, highs don't disappear and it is not compressed. It's all usable. It has been great getting to work my volume control again!The tone knob works!. Seriously, it really works; better than my guitar with passive SD Custom Custom and PRails.I also got the Fluence SSA single coil. Combined with this tapped single coil you get amazing "2 &4" tones. Real single coil tones. Seriously.This came with a 25K standard control and a 25K push/pull, tone capacitor, stereo jack, appropriate wires/clips, two bridge clips (for permanent switching on the lugs, literature on all the functionality and switching options, and wiring diagrams.This was a relatively complicated setup if you wanted to get all three sounds, but not more than read more a tapped passive humbucker.This is very well built. The mounting ears have very thick and wide metal mounts for the height adjustment screws. I was very happy to see this. My SD Blackouts had these small bushings that came out and I had to superglue them back in, repeatedly. Fishman's Customer service has been amazing! I was trying to get my knob off and I broke a push pull pot and pulled the mechanism out. I went to their website and filled out an email form explaining my situation. The next morning a rep said he would send replacements right out.All around I am very impressed and will definitely recommend and buy these again.
