The perfect bridge-position companion to the '57 Classic.

The Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup mimics those late-1950s humbuckers that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gave the pickup slightly higher output without sacrificing its rich vintage tone, which helped overdrive tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering. Made with the same features as the Gibson '57 Classic.

Features

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

Very Good Pickup!

By Kyle Benson

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

I bought an Epiphone Crestwood a few years back at a THRIFT STORE. The pickups were shot so I bought Gibson Pickups. I used this one in the bridge position and it made my guitar sing! I am so happy to have grabbed one. If you have a guitar that you want a Gibson sound, try one of these in the bridge position. You'll be impressed. You can go from clean to heavy without losing quality.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED

By Tim-3nSna

from Pgh Pa

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

I was originally going to install a 57 classic in the bridge of my Epiphone SG, but could only get this classic plus and to my suprise the 57 plus was awesome. I figured it would be good but was really pleased , it gave a real nice vintage tone and to my suprise had an awesome edge and I even got some nice feedback sitting about 8 feet away from my Marshall AVT 150 . Depending on your amp setting I had gotten everything from a nice hard rock sound to a metal sound . It replaced a Burstbucker 3 which I really did not care for to much this is a pretty cool pick-up and would definitly recommend this pick-up.

PAF tone

By Drew Hinkle

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

I've tried the DiMarzio's, Duncan's, and Fralins. I use the Gibons in a Les Paul for the best PAF tone, IMO. Pure vintage mojo...

Freaking Awesome

By Jim-aTyuT

from Chicago

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

I just recently installed this in the BRIDGE position of my Gibson SG. When I first put it in, I was happy with it, but not in love with the sound. Then I realized I need to make a couple of set up changes ... all of a sudden the sound is amazing. Make sure you put this in the bridge and that you take the time to set up you guitar properly after install. You will not be disappointed with it.

Classic Tone

By rockhound76s

from Southern Cali

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

This pickup is great. It is hotter than I was expecting for a vintage style pickup. I put it in the bridge of my project guitar, my Epiphone Vintage G-400. I use this guitar for cleans, blues, and classic rock tones, and this pickup suits all of them perfectly. I generally use my other guitars EMG's for metal sounds, but this pickup will do that as well. (It can get a little noisy when then the gain is turned up) Overall, this a great classic pickup for those hard to get classic rock tones.

Great On the Bridge

By Luke-aNTWQ

from Colorado

Comments about Gibson '57 Classic Plus Pickup:

This pickup is incredible, but it needs to be noted that this is a BRIDGE pickup...when I first bought it, I didn't know that and put it in the neck position. I was disappointed, but then did some research and found out the problem, and once that was taken care of...sounds great. Very wide range of tone and great output.
