OVERVIEW

The vintage humbucker tone we all love, combined with the up-front dynamics.

Fishman Fluence pickups for electric guitars are the first 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 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.

Idealized Pickups
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.

FEATURES
  • Multi-voice: Set and forget, or wire-up to toggle between two musically complimentary voices
  • Drop right in: Replaces standard humbucking pickups
  • Rechargeable on your guitar: optional lithium-ion battery pack (sold separately) offers weeks, not hours, of playing time (Standard 9V battery can also be used)

    Comments about Fishman Fluence Classic Humbucker Guitar Pickup Set:

    A set of these were installed into a Blacktop Telecaster. The set only comes with a wiring schematic for a Gibson control layout. The pot shafts fit only Gibson holes. When contacting Fishman for a different diagram, they quickly sent a difficult to read diagram and a very short comment about doing something referred to generally in the provided wiring scheme. This didn't help enough to install them correctly. Another friend tried with the exact same guitar and situation and received the same response. The youtube clip Fishman made for installation doesn't touch on any different types of wiring except 2 volumes, 2 tones and a 3 way toggle.

    Also, the battery must have a space routed for it in this guitar. The L-Ion packs Fishman make only fit Gibson guitars or Strats. Still waiting for more help with installation. Looking online doesn't help the product is so new, no one has alternate wiring diagrams.

    I suggest waiting for Fishman to realize not every humbucker equipped guitar has 2 volumes, 2 tones, and a 3 way toggle switch.

    Comments about Fishman Fluence Classic Humbucker Guitar Pickup Set:

    I'm just weighing in because there is one review that is misleading at this point pushing the stars to what I see as an unfair low. This is a new technology and there will be limitations if you try to put it in configurations it wasn't made for (YET). I bought mine thinking I'd put the Telecaster set (Greg Koch signature) in a G&L ASAT. I realized after starting that I needed pro help. The truth was it was made for your standard Fender Tele. That means a single coil in the neck and bridge and if there is deviation, like the input jack route which is different on an ASAT than a Tele you may find that this is just not for you. They don't make these humbuckers to go on Teles yet. I was however able to have mine installed with the built-in USB-rechargable battery without routing anything. Since the whole panel is replaced, the knobs from the G&L were way too small as was the little tip for the blade. But these were cheap since all I had to do was put Fender ones on. The technician charged me a small sum to solder everything and put the diagonal screws into the input jack hole. I absolutely LOVE Fluence PUPs now on my G&L ASAT. I am looking to buy these humbuckers for an Epi Les Paul I just ordered from MF as a "Stupid Deal" of the day. The G&L was a "Stupid Deal of the Day" too. So I will net two guitars voiced by the best and brightest in this field to get most prized sounds without the noise of ye olde technology. I can't imagine Fishman rolling the dice on something that isn't ready for prime time--just know that they don't cover every base yet and you have to buy pickups and battery packs that fit (no battery pack needed for the Telecaster because it's built in to the control panel).

        Comments about Fishman Fluence Classic Humbucker Guitar Pickup Set:

        These pickups are super easy to install. If you can install a regular pickup, you will have no problem with these. The pickups themselves were my first venture into Fishmans. Now, that is pretty much all I buy. I have had every set but the Tosin Abasi, and the Stephen Carpenter sets. The best thing is, once one set is wired up, pretty much all the others are plug and play. There is a review on here that is completely misleading. There is no reason you shouldn't be able to figure out how to wire a pickup to your layout with the information provided. These sets come with EVERYTHING you need besides solder, and a soldering Iron.
