Original Gibson Humbucker

The first humbucker was the PAF by Seth Lover (the PAF gets its name from the "patent applied for" sticker which was stuck on its underside), and this was subsequently found on the legendary Gibson guitars, including Les Paul, SG, ES series, but also in the exotics like Flying V or Explorer. For many guitarists it is still the best: not a screamer - it is much too classy for that - ​​but it can sing like no other pickup. Nowadays even the tough guys prefer to use the PAF in the neck position, because it harmonises so well with a slightly more violent-sounding pickup on the bridge.

  • '57 Classic
  • The ultimate reissue of the "Patent Applied For" pickup
  • Characteristics: From a clear bluesy sound to a fat, sustain-rich lead sound
  • Colour: Gold

Gibson 57 Classic - Great Jazz Pickup

David C. 968, 14.05.2013
I swapped out the stock neck pup on my Ibanez AF95 for the Gibson 57 Classic . This puts the icing on the cake for an already well made guitar. It now sounds like a Gibson jazz guitar for a fraction of the price.

Although expensive, you get what you pay for and Thomann's price was more competitive than other dealers.

Great pickup, well worth the upgrade.

Great pick ups for that vintage tone. Sound great in an Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO through an AC15. Very versatile too
