Gibson Burstbucker #1 Alnico II Pickup Gold
The Gibson Burstbucker pickup is a recreation of the legendary "patent applied for" (PAF) humbuckers, best known from the 1959 Les Paul Standard. Gibson ought to know- they invented the humbucker.
All Burstbuckers have unpolished magnets and non-potted coils. The Burstbucker 1 is slightly underwound with vintage output. It works well in the neck position, particularly with a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge position for a very authentic early PAF sound. This Gibson Burstbucker 1 pickup has a gold cover.
