    Anyone know for sure what magnet is used the mini strat for tele neck pickup from Harmonic Design?

    Is it ceramic? alnico 5? alnico 2?

    I emailed them but they would not say.

    Does it matter if it sounds good?

    Yes...

    - Because I have not heard in person
    - There are no sound clips on their site
    - You can't return or exchange
    - And am suspect of ceramic pickups

    So it would be like buying blind with no option

    I had one in a tele I used to own, I'm not certain but I would guess Alnico 5, sounded like it anyways. Great sounding p'up.
