Following the incredible reception of the Alnico III NVT Tele pickup set, Nordstrand Pickups has decided to expand the use of Alnico III into a full line of bass pickups. Extensive testing has revealed alnico III to be a fantastic magnet for bass pickups – it’s sweeter, more organic, and has a depth and richness that is beguiling and engaging. These characteristics reveal themselves even more when the pickup is pushed to the edge and played hard. Try a set today!
The following pickup models are now available in AlNiCo III:
• NJ4, NJ5, NJ6
• NP4, NP4v, NP5, NP5v, NP5F, all 51P configurations
• Big Singles, BigMan
• Dual Coils
Extensively designed, tested and built in the Nordstrand custom shop in Redlands, California, these pickups are available now at select dealers and for direct purchase on our website.
