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.

    In the series "I am looking for MY sound ", I trusted Anthony Ceccarelli, Cecca Guitars, for the making of my (again) new guitar pickups. And there, finally, the slap! Balanced, responsive, with grain and precision unmatched in current production and perfect for my playing style.
