Gibson 57 Classic Plus BK

PickupThe classic humbucker PAF Gibson but with more output. Provides a well-balanced sound with assertive overtones and an outstanding crack. The P-57 Classic Plus on the bridge along with the normal Classic 57 on the neck is an ideal combination for all popular Les Pauls, especially if one wants to achieve the classic sound with a little more bite on the bridge.

  • Substantially more turns than the classic 57 pickup
  • Characteristics: Higher output capacity
  • Amp can easily overload
  • Strong rhythm sound and easily singing lead sounds
  • Black

really nice high end punch

Bilbro, 06.05.2017
I replaced my bridge pickup in my 1990 Les Paul Custom with this 57 Classic.

The downside in my case was that the output signal is a little weaker than the neck pickup which I corrected by adjusting the height of both pickups respective of pickup to underside of the strings and to each other.

the upside is that this pick up is really bright and sparkly (clean and crunch/overdrive) slightly less bottom end than the previous pickup. When the amp is cranked up a little this wee beastie really punches out those tones with great attack and super sustain. All you really need to get a grin on while playing..

Just let her scream...

A True Classic

Gordon211, 20.05.2013
Got this to replace the same PU in my Peter Frampton Signature, the origional was killed by my Grandson and a glass of Coke!
This replacement is just like the original, harmonious full and warm when gentle with it, throaty and powerful when wound up.
Stands the test of time against anything from nowadays, nothing else comes close the sound is unique iconic just as the instrument it was born to.
