NPVJ5S Vintage Hum-Cancelling Set

  • You will get old school tones from the NP5V and a full, growly tone from the NJ5S. If you are looking for a P tone full of impact in the neck, then we recommend going with our standard NP5 in the case of this particular P/J combination. However, if you are looking for a P tone that is lower in output contributing to a darker midrange and low end that has been slightly subdued by a loss of clarity then this pickup might be exactly the thing you've been looking for.


    Technical Details:

    • NP5V pickup and an NJ5S (split coil) bridge position as a set.
    • Alnico V magnets.
    • Smaller magnet load in NP5V
    • Drop-in P/J combo replacement pickups.
    • Available in black plastic covers.  
    • Laser cut, fiber bobbins.
    • Wax-potted to contain any unruly frequency that may attempt to desecrate your desired tone.


      History: This pickup combination is derived from the desire to achieve the same vintage tone that we try to facilitate through the NPVJ4SV. However, this time we have loaded the split J with 43 and 44 SPN wire in order to pump up the overall tone, which seems to compensate for the lower output of the NP5V.
