Product Description

Experience the enchanting sound of Gibson's original Patent Applied For humbuckers with the Burstbucker™ line.

Crafted on the shop floor of the renowned Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, these pickups were initially wound with imprecise machines, resulting in varying levels of output and tone. However, with the introduction of the Burstbucker in the 1990s, Gibson successfully captured the rich, classic humbucker sound with historically unbalanced coil windings and Alnico 2 magnets.

Burstbucker Type 2 features medium output and is perfect for any position. None of the Burstbuckers are wax potted, and all feature vintage braided two-conductor wiring.
