12. Gibson 57 Classic Vintage GC

Gibson 57 Classic Vintage GC

Original Gibson Humbucker

The first humbucker was the PAF by Seth Lover (the PAF gets its name from the “patent applied for” sticker which was stuck on its underside), and this was subsequently found on the legendary Gibson guitars, including Les Paul, SG, ES series, but also in the exotics like Flying V or Explorer. For many guitarists it is still the best: not a screamer – it is much too classy for that – ​​but it can sing like no other pickup. Nowadays even the tough guys prefer to use the PAF in the neck position, because it harmonises so well with a slightly more violent-sounding pickup on the bridge.

  • ’57 Classic
  • The ultimate reissue of the “Patent Applied For” pickup
  • Characteristics: From a clear bluesy sound to a fat, sustain-rich lead sound
  • Colour: Gold

EMG Zakk Wylde Set Black

Active Pickup Set

Guitar hero Zakk Wylde prefers the rare combination: Single Cut + EMG and sounds impressive with that. That’s why the Zakk Wylde Pro Set consists of one EMG 81 for the bridge position (causing a long sustain and razor sharp attack – which is, despite being rare, important in combination with a high output pickup. It is just ideal for concise, thrilling lead lines and furious guitar art.) and one the EMG 85 (PAF model of EMG) for the somewhat tamer, bluesy sound on the neck position.

Everything else you need (potentiometer, cable jacks) is provided. The potentiometers are long models that fit properly into a single cut.
