All the musicality of Alnico in the neck position combined with cutting Ceramic attack in the bridge position. Full chords and fluid solos, plus the brutal active aggression and passive punch of Ceramic - in the same guitar.
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 our favorite pickups from the past.
Multi-Voice — Change Pickups on the Fly
The nature of the Fluence Core also allows us 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. Set and forget, or wire-up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices.
