Fishman Fluence pickups

Recommended Posts

I have a set of Classics in my Les Paul and am quite impressed. They sound as good as Seth Lovers and have a V1/V2 tone switch. I would like to hear other opinions.

 

Thanks, Lee

I have a set in a PRS. I think they're fantastic. Excellent tone, along with plenty of low impedance signal power to the amp.

 

You may or may not know that there are also pads on that bottom of each pickup that can be soldered to additional switches to do some very useful coil splitting options.

 

Fitting a battery is a problem in my specific guitar, but would not be an issue for a Les Paul. Theoretically, low impedance pickups might not sound very good with certain vintage effects, like maybe a germanium fuzz pedal or something, but I can't imagine too many people would care about that. My only other negative comment is that you're stuck with the Fishman cover design - no way to hide a set of these behind vintage looking covers.
