Patent-Applied-For sound and wax potted to fight pickup squeal.

The Gibson '57 Classic Humbucking pickup for the neck position is a reproduction of the original Gibson Humbucker from the late 1950’s. In those days, Gibson did not build separate pickups in those days for Neck and Bridge, they used the same pickup for both. To best replicate the “Gibson PAF”, guitarists should put a '57 Classic in the Neck and Bridge positions. It is actually for both. For more modern sounds, the '57 Classic in the neck can be paired with the '57 Classic Plus in the bridge. The guitar pickup features Gibson's special Alnico II magnet, wax potted to fight high-volume feedback squeal; vintage enamel-coated wire; nickel-plated pole pieces; nickel slugs; maple spacers; and vintage-style, 2-conductor, braided wiring.

Features
  • Special Alnico II magnet
  • Vintage enamel-coated wire
  • Nickel-plated pole pieces
  • Nickel slugs
  • Maple spacers

Get back to that vintage sound, JoJo. Order this Gibson humbucker today.

Excellent Gibson 57 classic pickup

By Sergio-z.N2D

from Belgrade, Serbia

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

I just replaced the stock pickup on my hollow body Washburn J3 with the Gibson 57 classic neck pickup and I must say that I'm very satisfied with this pup. It was everything I expected and more. The tone is jazzy and mellow, just as it should be. Despite the fact Washburn J3 is a jazz gitar, the stock pickup didn't have those jazzy colours and character. Well, this problem is solved now! :D

Gibson '57 Classic Pickups

By Mitch Kohlhagen

from chicago, il

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

I own a 1980 Les Paul Stanard. This year is commonly known as one of the worst as far Gbson electric instruments are concerned. I must agree. When I changed out the 1980 Gibson stock humbuckers for s set of the '57 Classic humbuckers, the first thing I noticed was their string-to-string balance, clarity, and punch. The closest I've heard since I played a vintage '59 Les Paul. The '57 Gibson Classic Humbukers can save any Gibson or Epiphone with tone problems. Get rid of those cheap imitations and get a taste of the real thing. You will not be sorry.

Touching the tone Gods....

By Mark Chaplin

from Coventry UK

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

These are quite simply the best sounding pickups I have ever tried. I have been on a tone quest for some time, searching for the perfect pickup for my Les Paul Studio in order to get classic rock tones. These things deliver, and then some. If you want warm, vintage, thick creamy characterful TONE, then look no further than a set of these. I cannot imagine ever finding a better sounding pickup than these for the style of music I play. In the neck position the tone is warm, full and creamy but, and here's the best bit - never too bassy or muddy. They are warm and clear at the same time. The definition of notes within a chord is quite simply staggering. In the bridge position, the classic plus is a little hotter of course, but is a perfect match for the 57 Classic in the neck. I cannot praise these pickups highly enough. They are, quite simply, heaven. And if all this sounds like gross exaggeration, then listen for yourselves. Drop a set of these timeless beauties in your Les Paul and sound like the pro's.

Perfect Replacement

By Eric-pDBAe

from Buffalo NY

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

I shoved 2 of them into my Epiphone Dot. The pickups that came with the Dot guitar were just not very good although the guitar itself was excellent for the price. I was not disappointed. Those pickups have a nice vintage tone-not too muddy. Just the right jangle. I am especially fond of running both pickups at the sometime. Coupled with my new Vox AD50VT- I think I found the vintage sound I was after!

Pure perfection (close as you can get!)

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

I have a Tanglewood L5 CES copy of the Gibson.(full size) A few days ago I had the '57 classic humbucker in gold installed on my axe at neck position. I almost feel like I own the real deal now. The 57 Classic is so sweet sounding, this is the first time I've upgraded my pickups and it won't be the last. I'm now going to get the 57 Classic+ for the bridge pick up as well.

Perfect Balanced Pickup

By Narkins

from New Jersey

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Humbucker Neck Pickup:

The 57 classic has got great tone. It has a high enough output for lead stuff and warm enough for rhythm. It has that great Gibson Humbucker tone. Try this on a Les Paul or an SG; you'll be hooked.
