Alnico II produces warm and very vintage sounding tones. In the order of magnetic strength, Alnico II is actually in the middle when compared to Alnico III and Alnico V rod magnets. Alnico II rod magnets were used in the earliest Telecaster guitars of the 1950’s.
All of these factors influence the sound of a pickup, but one of the easiest to quantify is the magnet type. There are a few magnets that are typically used in pickups, and by knowing a little bit about them you can more easily figure out which one might work for the sound you’re going for. Let’s start with. We’ll start by looking at Alnico, an iron alloy which includes iron (of course), aluminum (Al), nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co), as well as a little bit of copper (Cu). I guess when they were naming it they decided against Fealnicocu. The three most commonly used Alnico magnets for pickups are Alnico II, Alnico III and Alnico V, although Alnico VIII is also sometimes used. Let’s look a few of the most popular magnets, with a focus on how they apply to humbuckers.
