Humbucker Style

Check out Andy Aledort had to say after trying a set of our Humbucker Style Pickups.


Nick recently sent me a pair of his hand-wound PAF-style humbuckers and I really love them. I put them in an SG, originally fitted with Gibson ’57 Classics, and the guitar sounds better than ever. These vintage style pickups use Alnico 5 magnets, the standard magnet for all PAF’s starting in 1961. The resistance on these pickups is a little lower than most humbuckers today—7.4 for the neck and 8.5 for the bridge—resulting in a really nice, open vintage-style sound that I know most players today are striving to find. Crystal clear clean tones and full, warm distorted tones with the amp cranked and used with pedals. Great tones right there—thanks Nick!-- Andy Aledort (Dickey Betts and Great Southern, Jimi Hendrix Tribute Tour, Guitar World editor)
