Gibson Burstbucker Type 1 Pickup Zebra Coils
It would be a big mistake to assume that all humbuckers sound alike. Truth is, there are a number of Gibson humbucking pickups available, and each one has its own distinctive personality. The BurstBucker Series delivers all the classic vibe of the mythical "patent applied for" (PAF) humbuckers, best known from the 1959 Les Paul Standard. All three BurstBuckers have unpolished magnets and non-potted coils. There was tremendous variation among those early hand-wound humbucking pickups. Employees would wind the bobbins "until they were full." This was typically about 5,000 turns. The BurstBucker 1 is a little underwound, with medium classic output and it works well in both neck and bridge positions. This one has zebra (black / cream) coils and no cover.
