Get ready. Fishman Fluence pickups bring the RG5170G proudly into the realm of superior tone. Using cutting edge technology and ceramic magnets, they produce sounds which are full of attack and aggression, filling high gain tones with richness and saturation. Using the three way pickup selector, you can switch between the neck, bridge, and middle pickups, with the middle position using both. They are world renowned, emitting virtually no unwanted hum or noise.
The ultimate pickups. Two voicing options, which can be activated with the voicing switch, allow you to access two unique sounds. The first voicing creates an active, high output tone which will scream with an incredibly tight bass response and mountains of crunch.

Armed with these sonic tools, you'll have everything you need to push your sound and performance to perfection.
