Gibson Pickup Shop Historic Collection Custombucker Matched Humbucker Set

Huber Breese Music

The Gibson Custombucker is standard equipment on the Gibson Custom Shop’s Historic Reissue guitars and beloved by players worldwide for its legendary Patent Applied For tone. Years of research and testing by Gibson engineers resulted in a formula and process that replicates the sonic magic of the original Patent Applied For humbucker™ pickups from the 50s. Each Custombucker uses Alnico 3 magnets for a warm, sweet tone that accurately delivers the sonic characteristics of those highly cherished early humbuckers. Like the original Patent Applied For humbuckers, the Custombucker uses 42 AWG wire and unbalanced coils that are left unpotted for a historically accurate pickup that will please even the most discriminating player.
