Gibson Custombucker Matched Pickup Set, Double Black True Historic Nickel Cover
The Gibson Custombucker Matched Pickup Set 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. It has a Double Black bobbins design with a True Historic Nickel cover that shines in the stagelight.
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 with 2-conductor wiring, has an 8K average DC resistance and unbalanced coils that are left unpotted for a historically accurate pickup that will please even the most discriminating player. This is a matched set of pickups — it comes with two Custombuckers that are ready for any position.
