I posed this question in the old forums but never got a bite.

The new Melody Makers have conventional single-coil pickups rather than P90s. They seem to be very hot, and I do like the way they sound.

Does anyone know anything about these pickups? I even emailed Gibson tech support a few months back about recommended pickup height, and the guy that responded didn't have any information on them.

The Melody Maker pickup is a "stacked coils"; so it got a clear sound like the single coil pickup, and no hum.
The magnets are "multiceramics". So I think that it arenīt AlNiCo but there arenīt a ceramic bar.
I like these pickups.
I own a Melody Maker Dual Pickup.
