Historically accurate "Patent Applied For" replica with airy tone and unbalanced coils.
On the shop floor of the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the earliest Gibson "Patent Applied For" humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with varying degrees of output and tone. The BurstBucker line of pickups represents Gibson's drive to recapture the magic of the original "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. BurstBucker Type 2 features medium output, and is perfect for both positions. This version wax-potted and has 4-conducter wiring.
