Gibson Vintage 57 Classic Plus black · Electric Guitar Pickup

If you choose a Gibson humbucker, you buy from the manufacturer, who invented the Humbucker in 1955. The same producer, who had been winding pickups since 1935 and was the first to use Alnico magnets and adjustable pole pieces in pickups. The quality claim of Gibson borders on obsession, to the point that they produce their own magnets to ensure that all values are coherent. The pickups are waxed and the Pole Shoes (these are the metal tubes in which the pole pieces sit) are narrowly fitting to avoid any microphony.

Authentic PAF replica, but with equally wound coils in contrast to the burs buckers and somewhat "sweeter" sounding. The Classic Plus has "a few extra windings", as happened in the late 50s occasionally by accident. The slightly higher output is not at the expense of the full vintage sound.
