This set combines the best characteristics of our standard P with the earnest clarity of the NJ4SV. The hum-canceling qualities of these pickups in congruence with each other's tonal structure creates a dynamic amalgam of P/J versatility. The neck position distributes a full bodied and resonant 60s & 70s tone, while the bridge cuts through with its genuine growl and piercing lucidity. This P/J combination will give presence and clear cut articulation to any player's style, providing a tone that asserts these pickups' character through a steady study of their fluid interactivity.

History:The NPJ4SV set is provided to give players a fluid P/J combination that distributes a clearer, more invigorating, and refreshing partnership than its brother, the NPJ4SE. While the SE combo is significant for its great muscularity and substantial aggression, the SV emits a guanine character that refreshes the throaty trajectory of its P counterpart. Essentially, the birth of the NPJ4SV stems from an effort to balance the wild tendencies of the NPJ4SE, which works to allow players a choice between either what is essentially the embodiment of impact and muscularity or the terse tonality of genuine articulation and vigor.

Alnico III magnets differ from Alnico V in that they are warmer with a softer character. Think of them like a 60’s J style sound taken even further down the warm and fat path. Alnico V by contrast is brighter, cleaner and punchier, and will have a more wiry, stringy character. As another example, we’d recommend A3 for fretless or a fat 60’s Jaco type thing and A5 is great for a modern slap type thing or an R and B sound.
Alnico V comes standard.
