This item is not part of our current product range.
Electric Guitar Pickup · Technology: Humbucker · Strings: 6 string · Position: Neck, bridge · Character: Vintage · Connections: 2 wires · Magnet: Alnico II · Output: Low · Impedance: ~ 8 kOhms · Cover: Gold · Including: Wiring diagram & mounting screws Burstbucker are the most authentic PAF - replicas that Gibson offers. The magnets are not polished, and the coils are not waxed as for example in '57 Classics. Moreover, the coils are wound too unequal, because in the '50s, the wrappers had no automatic shut-off and the coils were wound "until they were full." Full means about 5000 turns per coil, according as when the workers stopped the machine. These unequal numbers of turns resulted in slightly more "bite" in the affected pickups.

The Burstbucker 2 corresponds to the output of the '57 Classic.
