    OUR TAKE ON THE EVER POPULAR PAF TONE

    The Tonerider AC4 is a matched humbucker set that is pick sensitive, rich in harmonics and with a tight bass.

    This set began life as a rumour: We’d heard for years that some boutique makers were sourcing Alnico 4, and player response was great. After working with our first magnet supplier, we came up with an Alnico 4 mix, that seemed to help tame the muddy bass that some guitar Gibson-scale guitars exhibit, especially on the neck pickup. Cranking the gain we found that the picukp saturates quick and starts to “sing” harmonically, with a vocal, flutey quality – the mark of a great PAF!

    OPTIONS & SPACING

    Colours & Covers: Available in black or zebra open coils, or with highly-polished gold or silver nickel covers.

    Wiring: All AC4’s come with four conductor wiring as standard for maximum flexibility.

    Spacing:  99% of AC4’s we’ve made have a 50mm spacing (as measured from the centre of the low E polepiece to the centre of the high E polepiece).  This 50mm spacing  suits Les Paul and SG guitars well.

    We also now have in stock a limited number of F-spaced AC4’s in white, for those looking for a great alternative to an Alnico V or II magnet in HSS strats, or even Floyd Rose equipped guitars.

    Baseplate: All Tonerider humbuckers are built with medium-length 9mm baseplate legs for easy installation in a wide variety of instruments. Baseplates are all Nickel-Silver with the Tonerider logo stamp.
