OVERVIEW

The pickup that give the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound.

Slightly overwound, with hotter output, the BurstBucker Type 3 works well in the bridge position with a BurstBucker Type 2 in the neck position.
On the shop floor of the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the earliest Gibson "Patent Applied For" humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with varying degrees of output and tone. The BurstBucker line of pickups represents Gibson's drive to recapture the magic of the original "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. First introduced in the early 1990s, the Gibson BurstBucker - Types 1, 2, and 3 - successfully captured the subtle variations of true, classic humbucker tone with historically "unmatched" 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. BurstBucker Type 1 features a lower output, excellent for the neck position. BurstBucker Type 2 features medium output, and is perfect for both positions. BurstBucker Type 3 is overwound and hot, which is typically ideal for the bridge position. None of the BurstBuckers are wax potted, and all feature vintage braided two-conductor wiring.

Comments about Gibson Burstbucker Type 3 Humbucker PickupDouble Black:

If you wire this pickup for a coil tap, you can get a really awesome sound. What you may not like about it though is that even on a clean sounding, it can be distorted if strummed hard enough. Personally, I like that because it allows for a lot of dynamics to take place. You can pick softly and get a very bright sound, and then you can strum and it sounds like you've put a compressor on. An awesome pickup overall, and it can definitely be used for classic metal or even new metal depending on the style.
It's a very hotly wound pickup. It can be used for a lot of different genres, but I use it for funk and indie rock.
Very solid design
You get what you pay for: An awesome pickup
