Hell yes! Maybe not well in this hairy chemist's case, but I can't ever say I've rocked out in my lab coat...

Actually, I'm a physicist, and of the little cabal we had at uni, a pretty tight group of 6 of us, all of us were guitarists too  8)

Simon D and major, I'll try not to take offence ;)

Apparently theres a strong correlation between aptitude for and interest in physics and liking rock and metal. Or so an education expert dude in London tells me.

I thought that was interesting about the AIV; I didnt know that, thanks!


No offence meant, hopefully none was taken.  :wink:

Alnico IV definitely does exist and was certainly used throughout the 50s and notably is found in original PAF humbuckers(along with AII and AIII).
Alnico IV - AL 7% Ni 14%  Co 24% Cu 3% Ti 0%
Br: 8000 Gs, Hcj 660 OE, BHmax 2.0 MGOe
Alnico IV is Isotropic  and is made specially for us based on original samples from the 50s.
Alnico IV is definitely not sub standard or low charged Alnico V-Alnico V, VDG and 5-7 is also heat treated differently.
All reputable pickup makers such as Lindy Fralin and Tom Holmes acknowledge the existence of Alnico IV and use it in their pickups just as we do too.
Most importantly the tone produced from Alnico IV powered pickups is very different  to AII, AIII and AV.After all that's what we're all interested in-tone!

thanks Tim!
Why waste your breath moaning at the crowds? Nothing can be done to stop the shouting; if every tongue was still, the stones and rocks themselves would start to sing.

That's because all metal fans are either skinheads of geeks =D

And I wouldn't have it any other bloody way!
