Grade 3 AlNiCo (Aluminum/Nickel/Cobalt) rod magnets with flat edges for making pickups. A3 has the least magnetic pull compared to A2 and A5 because it actually contains no cobalt. Early 1950's strats and teles used A2 and A3 rods.
Available in the following sizes:
Diameter: 0.871" or 0.195"
Height: 0.630", 0.650", 0.671", 0.688", and 0.710"
NOT magnetized, so you'll need to charge them.
Note: Some may have a small magnetic charge due to our quality control procedures.
*PLEASE NOTE: The flatwork we carry is made for 0.195" diameter magnets. If you're buying magnets to use with our flatwork, make sure you choose ones with a 0.195" diameter.
