Classic Gibson tone with a bit more punch

nidzaliman, 13.03.2018
I use the Gibson 57 classic plus in my 95' Gibson Les Paul Classic.
Great pickup, the classic Gibson sound with a bit more punch, I love it!

I prefer it much more to the Gibson 498T which I got in order to have a little more output than I would on a Gibson 57 Classic. I was not pleased with the Gibson 498T sound, it was "thin and trebly". I find that the Gibson 57 Classic Plus is the halfway point from a Gibson 57 Classic to modern pickups with higher output.

The only con is that my guitar is really dark sounding and the Gibson 57 Classic Plus is not helping on that field. Non the less this issue is guitar related and I am willing to accept the sacrifice.

I wholeheartedly recommend this pickup, I will definitely be using it in the future on some other guitars as well.

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...
