STEPHEN CARPENTER USER GUIDE UNIVERSAL FLUENCE USER GUIDE WARRANTY INFO

Stephen is a player’s player, preferring to concentrate more on his music than equipment. “My signature pickup set has the full range of tones that you’re looking for. Voice 1 is similar to the tone of the original Modern Humbucker Fluence set. And for the second voice, I like a bit more heat, some hot stuff on it… more edge, so that’s in there too.”

Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.

“I was never the super-critical guy. I’m not much for specs, but I like clean, full sounding pickups. We put Fluence in and I jammed on them for 45 minutes and thought… ‘these things are freaking great…’ I didn’t want to stop playing.”

Stephen Carpenter Signature Pickup Set Includes:

  • 1 ceramic pickup (bridge position), 1 alnico pickup (neck or middle position)
  • All components required to achieve Stephen’s wiring scheme (minus pickup selector)
  • Volume and Tone pots
  • Push-pull Voice Selector pot for use in Volume or Tone position
