Dirty and brilliant at the same time

Sven860, 10.09.2010
I put this pickup at the neck position of my Gibson Les Paul standard and am very satisfied with the much clearer tone. For years, the guitar sounded too "queasy" in contrast to the bridge pickup. Nevertheless, the "fat" sound is not lost and the guitar is still "she herself". Distorted, the Burstbucker 1 sounds incredibly filthy and warm at the same time. Visually, it is also very appealing.

In addition, it invites modifications, since it is not waxed and you do not have to remove a cap: I simply screwed it on and repositioned the rod magnet upside down (around the vertical axis), which I use the notorious "out-of- Phase sound ". Very recommendable!

Less is more

OliK, 20.02.2010
I have replaced the BB # 2 neckpickup of a Les Paul against this Burstbucker # 1. Its sound in the neck position has become simply rounder and somewhat tighter. The BB # 2 has now moved to the bridge position, where he makes a better figure than the former, somewhat centered, BB # 3. All in all a successful reconstruction with a very coherent end result.

The "slightly underwound" is very good for this pickup. The articulation is good and the sound is still bold and quite dynamic. The guitar sounds more coherent, more adult and carries more, despite the "supposed power degradation". For rock, Bluesrock a great thing. Because of the beautiful round tone, the good articulation and dynamics surely also very good for jazz.

All in all a really very good pickup! Especially in combination with the Burstbucker # 2 at the bridge, 300kOhm Volumepoties and 500kOhm Tonepoties. ... and not afraid of "underwound" even if he with 7.45 kOhm about 1kOhm less resistance than his bridge colleague BB # 2, which has not much to say, loud is nevertheless. - But still clear.
