Ok. I know of 5-2 pickups, meaning alnico 5 for the bass and alnico 2 for the treble strings. Given the fact that a lot of neck pickups, especially on telecasters have overbearing bass and not enough treble i can see a point of having a less strong magnet for the bass strings and a stronger one for the treble strings. That would even out the issues neck pickups display. Yet, every pickup maker does the opposite. The old way of lowering the bass side of a classic A5 neck pickup to even out the differences in pull seems to me evidence of my way of thinking. Am i missing something? I did leave out winding/output issues on purpose. I am more interested in the ideas..
