The pickup that defined the legendary â59 Les Paul sound.
The Burstbucker Type 2 humbucker is wound in the range of Gibsonâs â57 Classic for replica sound. Unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, just like the original. Slightly hotter than the BurstBucker 1, the 2 works well in the bridge position with a BurstBucker 1 in the neck position.
On the shop floor of the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the earliest Gibson âPatent Applied Forâ humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with varying degrees of output and tone. The BurstBuckerâ¢ line of pickups represents Gibsonâs drive to recapture the magic of the original âPatent Applied Forâ humbuckers. First introduced in the early 1990s, the Gibson BurstBuckerâ¢ â Types 1, 2, and 3 â successfully captured the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone with historically âunmatchedâ bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets. They produce an airy, full tone, and when overdriven they achieve a magical distortion with the slightly enhanced highs that made the originals famous. BurstBuckerâ¢ Type 1 features a lower output, excellent for the neck position. BurstBuckerâ¢ Type 2 features medium output, and is perfect for both positions. BurstBuckerâ¢ Type 3 is overwound and hot, which is typically ideal for the bridge position. None of the BurstBuckersâ¢ are wax potted, and all feature vintage braided two-conductor wiring.
