76 Edison 1 year ago On the subject of pickups I have heard some pronounce it; Al-NEEK-oh. ...which sounds odd and incorrect to me. ('You've heard of TV Jones? Well meet Al Nico.')If the term 'alnico' is a combination of the words; Aluminium, Nickel, and Copper, it should be pronounced; AL-neh-coe. Right? .. at least that's how I've been saying it all these years.
