With its "Patent Applied For" decal on the baseplate, the '57 Classics are faithful replicas of the famous Gibson humbuckers that helped define the music of the late 1950s. While this timeless beauty gives you a tone that is warm and subtle with full, even response, it doesn't hold back when you need that classic Gibson humbucker crunch!
The perfect bridge-position companion to the '57 Classic, the '57 Classic Plus mimics those late-1950s humbuckers that received a few extra turns of wire. This treatment gave the pickup slighter higher output without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. It helps overdrive tube preamps to a smooth level of saturation without becoming overpowering.
The '57 Classic Plus features Gibson's special Alnico II magnet, vintage enamel coated wire, nickel plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers and vintage-style, two-conductor, braided wiring.
