OVERVIEW

Fatter, meatier tone with more drive and attack.

The BurstBucker Pro Neck humbucker enhances the vintage "edge" of Gibson's popular BurstBucker pickups with the added feature of an Alnico 5 magnet. The BurstBucker Pro's characteristic sweet harmonic complexity and crystalline clarity derive from its slightly unmatched bobbin windings. Alnico V magnets are used in place of the traditional Alnico IIs, yielding fatter, meatier tone with more drive and attack. Provides classic Gibson "Patent Applied For" tone with a hint of attitude. Extra noise reduction keeps things quiet even with a high-gain rig.

BurstBucker pickups from Gibson Gear now give guitarists a choice of three replica sounds from Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups-the pickups that give the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound. The BurstBuckers-all with unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, like the originals - represent the variations found among vintage Gibson humbuckers.

    Comments about Gibson Burstbucker Pro Neck Humbucker Pickup:

    I heard these in my friends gibson les paul and the great tone blew me away. I've always thought gibson les paul humbuckers were a bit dark/muddy but these burstbucker pros sound great. I like the brighter, richer tone. I put a pair in my epiphone les paul standard and it sings... The neck pickup on its own has much more tone and clarity than any other neck pickup i've used in a les paul. In the past, I never played just the neck pu...too dull...but with the BB pro-it has much more life....love them!!

        Comments about Gibson Burstbucker Pro Neck Humbucker Pickup:

        I put a set of Burstbucker pros in my Custom Fender Tele..and I must say I couldn't be any happier! These pickups have a great deal of tonal quality. Very rich on the high and mid range and just enough lows that don't mud up at all! These are perfect for that vintage tones. At high gain settings these pups keep there clarity and tightness. The BB pros seem to clean nice and react well to 250K volume and tone pots.

          Just picked up a Gibson Les Paul Studio with these puppies. Absolutely amazing tone and sustain. Channeling Duane Allman just got a whole lot easier.
