If there is a list of legendary guitars, the Randy Rhoads turned cream white Les Paul Custom is in the top 5. This was the 1st guitar he was identified with, donated by the members of Quiet Riots. She followed him throughout his career. It was a Les Paul Custom from 1974, then fitted with T-Buckers, the new version of Gibson’s PAFs. Most of these T-Buckers were fitted with Alnico 5s and only a few models were fitted with Alnico 3s including Randy’s. The sound was then mellow and open for the neck pickup while supporting saturation well. The bridge pickup, nervous enough to play all styles (Randy Rhoads was not known for playing Blues), became pleasant with singing highs, unlike the Alnico 5 version.

Gibson’s Super Humbucker

Our set takes the exact characteristics of the reissue that Gibson’s Custom shop produced in 2010: the Les Paul Custom 74 Randy Rhoads. The neck pickup is 7.4 kohms and the bridge 7.6 kohms. They both benefit from a slightly asymmetrical coil, which widens the frequency range picked up by the pickup. This handwound model is made, like all our pickups, with the best components available on the market.
