Gibson Burstbucker Pro
Alnico 5 Neck Pickup Nickel
In 2000, Gibson released the Burstbucker humbucker, which captured true humbucker tone with historically accurate "unmatched" bobbin windings and an Alnico II magnet. Two years later, Gibson developed an Alnico 5 Burstbucker specifically for new Les Paul Standards. These pickups set a new standard for humbuckers which recreated the original vintage sound of Gibson guitars.
Burstbucker Pro humbuckers are offered in neck position and bridge position and are wax potted so that they can withstand loud volume pressures without annoying feedback. This Gibson Burstbucker Pro is best suited for bridge position and has a nickel cover.
