Their dual switchable voices give you Black-Guard and White-Guard character for more chime or grunt. The pickups' active design eliminates any noise from your signal. And the Gristle-Tone pickups are run from an onboard rechargeable power supply for up to 250 hours of continual performance. The Fishman Fluence Greg Koch Gristle-Tone pickup set delivers the most iconic vintage Tele tones with none of the vintage issues.

Two iconic Tele-style tones
The Fluence Core that powers the Gristle-Tone pickup set provides you with the choice of two selectable voices. The pickup's first voice is reminiscent of a the old White-Guard Tele-style guitars from the '60s. This is the chimey and clear sound that powers the best chicken pickin' lines. The second voice invokes a '50s Black-Guard guitar for a muscular and punchy character. The voices can be accessed by any number of standard switches or push/pull controls, and can be added as a completely reversible modification to most guitars.
All the vintage tone, none of the noise
Greg Koch has made a huge name for himself with the sound of vintage single-coil pickups. But vintage single coils often bring with them hum, buzz, and inductance issues. Fishman Fluence pickups use an active design to send a low impedance signal, allowing you to run long cable runs with no signal loss. And you won't experience any signal loading when working your volume knob for cleaning up your guitar's tone. And best of all, you can run these pickups as hot as you want with no 60-cycle hum or interference.
Power supply delivers 200+ hours of use
Not only was Fishman able to side step some of the undesirable issues of vintage pickups, but they even raised the bar on modern active designs. The Fluence Gristle-Tone set uses a rechargeable battery pack, offering 200+ hours of playing time. An indicator lets you know well in advance of running out of juice. And you can easily recharge your guitar in a matter of hours with the included USB charger. You'll be able to play your gig or session without any worry about battery strength, carrying spares, or throwing environmentally harmful batteries away.
