P.A.F. Alnico Magnets
Alnico is a magnetic alloy consisting of Aluminum, Nickel and Cobalt. Through the P.A.F. era Gibson used different formulations of Alnico that are identified as Alnico 2, 3, 4 and 5. Through the P.A.F. era each of these grades were used with A3 being the least commonly used in a P.A.F.. Differences in magnetic strength, coercive force, inductance, formulation and heat treating mean that each of these variations of Alnico magnet have a large impact on the tone of a P.A.F. beyond simply the gauss level.
You can compare the tonal differences between long Alnico 2, 4, and 5 in identical pickups in this Doug and Pat video that showcases P.A.F. reproduction guitar pickups
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.
A guitar pickup’s magnet or magnets provide(s) the power that enables it to do its thing by sensing the movement of the guitar’s steel strings when you play.
Different types of guitar pickups use different numbers of magnets, usually one, two, or six, depending on their design. If just one or two magnets are used, they are usually found as bar magnets mounted beneath the pickup’s coil, which charge steel pole pieces running through the coil.
