The BurstBucker Pro Bridge humbucker enhances the vintage "edge" of Gibson's popular BurstBucker pickups with the added feature of an Alnico 5 magnet. The BurstBucker Pro's characteristic sweet harmonic complexity and crystalline clarity derive from its slightly unmatched bobbin windings. Alnico V magnets are used in place of the traditional Alnico IIs, yielding fatter, meatier tone with more drive and attack. Provides classic Gibson "Patent Applied For" tone with a hint of attitude. Extra noise reduction keeps things quiet even with a high-gain rig.
BurstBucker pickups from Gibson Gear now give guitarists a choice of three replica sounds from Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups-the pickups that give the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound. The BurstBuckers-all with unpolished magnets and non-potted coils, like the originals-represent the variations found among vintage Gibson humbuckers.

I have a Gibson Les Paul Classic and I replaced the 500t bridge pickup for the BurstBucker Pro. I must say I was not impressed. To me it had to much treble and was mid rangy. I went back to the 500t, if your looking for a vintage tone go with 57classics or BurstBucker 1 and 2 but remember it's all about personal taste.
