It is by far the most used magnet in the manufacture of electric guitar pickups. It has a significant magnetic force (between 950 and 1100 Gauss for a magnet of this size). The bass and treble are very present, its mids are deep and have very good definition. The sustain is slightly lower due to its significant magnetic force. The Alnico 5 can be used with all sizes and types of copper wire, it supports overwinding without problem. Finally, it is equally at home in vintage or modern registers, everything will depend on the amp into which you plug it. It is used in most modern or Hot Vintage humbuckers. The number of famous microphones that use it are legion among all manufacturers. To name just a few: the JB (SH-4), the 59 (SH-1), the Sentient, the Pegasus and many others from Seymour Duncan. Gibson has the Burstbucker Pro, the 498T and the Angus Young model. At Dimarzio you will find among others the Air Classic and the new Fortitude signature Gojira Joe Duplantier.
