An allround humbucker for a lot of styles
mkon, 08.08.2019
I use this humbucker in bridge posision for both a Gibson les paul and a ESP M-II. Clarity, midrange and tight sounding humbucker. It is still in the "low" output range, but this makes it articulate very clearly. Mine reads about 8.9k ohm.

57 Classic Plus
BrendanP, 02.12.2014
This pickup was an instant improvement to the stock epiphone alinco pickup I previously had installed in the bridge of my eppy custom,the pickup I noticed sounds instantly bright for a humbucker, I feel that there is a much better bass response in this pickup as previously the stock pickup could sound quite muddy at times when handeling lower frequencies, this pickup sounds great when handeling a higher gain setting which you probably wouldnt use an ordinary classic 57 for but with the extra coils its top notch, but what else would you expect from a Gibson product?

Sensationell!!!
Freakbrother, 04.11.2011
Ich hab die Pups (Classic & Plus) in meine Hamer Special FM und meine Fender 50th Anniv. Strat eingebaut und bin hin und weg von deren Sound und deren Balance im Set. So ausgewogen, so klar und definiert. Hab auch die Bustbucker Pro versucht, die sind aber durch Alnico5 Magneten agressiver.
Die P-57 klingen sehr "musikalisch". Sie geben jede Nuance des Instruments wider, sprich, mit einem guten Stück Holz Sind diese Pups TOP! Hab sie auch in meiner MIM Strat (Pappelkorpus) versucht - naja - die Pups alleine können keine Wunder wirken - da muß das Gesamtpaket (Holz, Hardware, Elektonik) schon stimmen! Gut - der Sound wird in einer nicht so teuren Gitarre sicher nicht schlechter aber diese Pickups "schlucken" halt keine Feinheiten (ob gut oder schlecht) sonder geben sie unkomprimiert und klar wider!
Sehr schön ist auch wie die Tonabnehmer jeden Ton bei einem Akkord freigeben. Bei den BB Pro kam mir eine Wand an Sound entgegen (kann auch gewünscht sein) aber bei den P-57ern kommt ein sehr komplexes Gebilde daher. Man hört jeden Ton schwingen. Selbst bei Overdrivesounds lassen sich die einzelnen Töne rauspicken.
Also jeder der einen sehr feinzeichnenden, extrem musikalischen und ausgewogenen Pickup sucht ist hier sicher richtig.
Ich selber Spiele Blues, Rock &Roll und Southern Blues Rock (ala Allman Bros.) mit ihnen und da passen sie super rein!
