This Custom bucker Alnico 3 pickup set replicates the Gibson Custom Bucker pickup. These pickups are installed on the historic replicas made by the Gibson custom shop. Far from being a mere copy, this is an improved, hand-wound version with more dynamics and resonance than the original. The Alnico 3, combined with a more muscular winding for a PAF, will provide just the right amount of medium to give a real vintage character to your sound without losing definition. The winding here is slightly denser than on a traditional PAF to compensate for the low power of the Alnico 3 magnet. This Custom Bucker delivers a thicker and slightly more powerful sound than the “Delta Roots”. The result is still as harsh, with good definition, excellent sustain and a strong character. This set is perfect for Jazz, Memphis Blues, British Blues, Hard Blues, Classic Rock, Southern Rock and Hard Rock.
