The cutting ceramic attack of the Fishman Fluence makes brutal active aggression and passive punch possible in the same guitar. Great in both positions or paired with the Fishman Alnico neck model. Fishman Fluence pickups for electric guitars are the 1st real advancement in pickup system design in over 80 years. A new, analog, system-wide approach delivers great "idealized" guitar sounds that are also quiet and free from hum and other artifacts that affect favorite pickups from the past.
Multi-Voice - Change Pickups on the Fly
The nature of the Fluence Core also allows you to create multiple voices for each pickup, so every Fluence pickup has two selectable, complementary voices onboard. These voices can be accessed via any number of standard switches or push-pull controls.
Power To The People
Another example of the fresh thinking applied to Fluence is the way their power supply is stored and managed. Can you use a standard 9V battery? Yes. But where do you put it if your guitar doesn't have a compartment? The optional Fluence battery packs require no modification and screw on to your guitar in place of the control or spring cover. They offer 200+ hours of playing time and fully charge in a few hours using a standard USB charger.
With Fluence pickups you can run hundreds of feet of guitar cable without any loss in sound quality. Your volume control operates smoother than you've ever experienced and it has no adverse affect on your tone - allowing you to get musically useful sounds in the "2 to 5" region of its travel. No hum, no buzz, no spurious noise or frustrating inductance issues.
Multi-Voice so you can set and forget, or wire-up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices

Batteries are rechargeable on your guitar (Optional lithium-ion battery pack offers weeks, not hours, of playing time, Standard 9V battery can also be used)

Ok the pickup is active and doesn't disappoint in that respect it's got that active metal sound but with a bit more clarity. There's two voicings and a high pass filter if wired up correctly and comes with a volume, jack, and push pull pot. It also comes in a variety or colors and shades which is very nice to fit your needs. Once you get it in and going it's great can't recommend it enough it's getting there that's the battle. I contacted fishman with a few questions the good news quick and to the point responses the bad news they have no idea how to wire this thing there's one diagram with 2 volumes, a toggle, 2 pickup, 2 push pull tone knobs which is great but I have a volume, toggle config and most of us only have maybe another tone knob so you need to decipher the diagram. When asked for a working config the way I wanted it to be and after research pointing to another diagram I got no that won't work but anyone familiar with guitar wiring should be able to figure it out. So off to guitar center to there pickup installer after looking at the wiring diagram I got wow that's bizarre i'm sure I could figure it out but would halve to map it out since it's so much different. I literally still can't get it running exactly how I want it there's a high pass filter which doesn't even need connected according to the instructions another second voice ground that's the same it's all very confusing. once you get it going though pure gold.........
