The Gibson BurstBucker pickups are faithful replicas of the famous "Patent Applied For" pickups found on the 1959 Gibson Les Paul "Sunburst" Standard, considered by many to be the epitome of classic electric solid-body guitar design and tone. With a special unfinished alnico II magnet and non-symmetrical oil windings, these pickups deliver an "airy" full tone. Clean, they're a sweet, rich sounding pickup. When overdriven they achieve a magical distortion with slightly enhanced highs that made the originals famous. Available in three outputs - #1 is the lower output, excellent for neck position, #2 is medium output, perfect for both positions, and #3 is overwound for the bridge position. These pickups come just as they were made in the '50s with no wax potting and vintage braided two-conductor wiring. A "must" for the serious tone enthusiast!
