In operation since 1935, the Gibson Pickup Shop is paying homage to its past by offering the Original Collection. The '57 Classic 2-conductor humbucker is built to the same specs as the vintage Gibson PAF pickup with Alnico II magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, maple spacers and braided wiring. The '57 Classic produces a warm and rich tone with a balanced frequency response. The pickup is potted to remove internal air space, diminish microphonics and prevent stress on the pickup wires. Crafted in Nashville, Tennessee.
