Classic Custombucker humbucker set for versatile tone.

The Gibson Custombucker is standard equipment on the Gibson Custom Shop’s Historic Reissue guitars and beloved by players worldwide for its legendary Patent Applied For tone. Years of research and testing by Gibson engineers resulted in a formula and process that replicates the sonic magic of the original Patent Applied For humbucker pickups from the '50s.

Each Custombucker uses Alnico 3 magnets for a warm, sweet tone that accurately delivers the sonic characteristics of those highly cherished early humbuckers. Like the original Patent Applied For humbuckers, the Custombucker uses 42 AWG wire and unbalanced coils that are left unpotted for a historically accurate pickup that will please even the most discriminating player.

The Gibson Custombucker humbucker set offers clear, articulate tone suitable for a wide range of musical genres and playing styles.


  • Historically accurate Patent Applied For replica with unbalanced coils and a sweet, warm tone
  • Position: Any
  • Magnet: Alnico 3
  • Wiring: 2-Conductor
  • Cover: True Historic Gold
  • Double Black bobbins
  • Unpotted
  • Average DC Resistance: 8K
