Gibson Vintage Burstbucker #2, gold · Electric Guitar Pickup

Burstbucker are the most authentic PAF - replicas that Gibson offers. The magnets are not polished, and the coils are not waxed as for example in '57 Classics. Moreover, the coils are wound too unequal, because in the '50s, the wrappers had no automatic shut-off and the coils were wound "until they were full." Full means about 5000 turns per coil, according as when the workers stopped the machine. These unequal numbers of turns resulted in slightly more "bite" in the affected pickups.

The Burstbucker 2 corresponds to the output of the '57 Classic.

burstbucker 2

User on 20.09.2017

Bought these for my epiphone custom. On one mf my guitars they sounded excellent but another pair I bought for another epi custom sounded dreadful - tinny like a telecaster1 Taken it to a guitar shop in case I've wired 'em wrong!

Great Pick up

I had a Burstbucker 3 but it was too hot for the sound I wanted on my Epiphone Sheriton. However this is exactly the sound I am after. Also great speedy service and the best price around from Musik Produktiv, I will use them again.
