A personal favorite in humbuckers

Everything else about my Les Paul felt right, but I could not overcome the fact that something seemed to be missing sonically. It felt as if the guitar left something lacking; I needed more dynamics, clarity and punch. So I did as most of us do, I read a ton of stuff on the Internet; websites, forums, blogs, the whole nine yards. One model of pickup that seemed to pop up every now and so often was the Gibson '57 Classic.

Intrigued by the buzz around this pickup, I ordered a normal '57 Classic for the neck position and a '57 Classic Plus for the bridge position.

Wow! What a difference the pickups made. The original pickups were by no means bad, but the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus provided me with the sound I'd been looking for. The clarity, the dynamics, the punch - everything was there. Now I get creamy leads from my neck pickup for solos and that little extra bite from the bridge pickup for rabid rhythm work. Thanks a lot for a great product!

This Quick Connect pickup has the 2 pin black connector. Very easy to fit in a matter of minutes. Very well made. I needed a pickup for the neck position which would compliment a recently installed Angus Young pickup (bridge position). The 57 Classic is a perfect partner smooth, sweet, blues, jazz and rock tones, this pickup is very versatile. No muddy bass notes. Just a well balanced pickup. Highly recommend.

Superb sound! My epiphone guitar sounds is now unbelievable

Bought this 57 Classic to upgrade my Epiphone ES175.
The result is simply wonderful. The sound on the clean channel of a Fender Pro Champion is simply superb: Rich, heart warming, the sound I was looking for for years.
Also, in my opinion for once, Gibson has positioned the price very reasonably making it very much affordable to anybody.
I simply recommend it as an upgrade to any electric guitar especially for playing the blues or some Jazz.
The upgrade itself is very and is very simple to perform and is at the reach of most normal person.
So do not hesitate to go for it. You will simply not believe the result....

Great pickup!

This is a truly excellent humbucker. It is well made, tidily packaged and relatively sensibly priced. It is advertised to be vintage-accurate in every aspect except the wax potting which should prevent the pickup from feeding back. It is a little brighter than most humbuckers and has less output but still manages to sound clearly with a relatively high amounts of distortion. Needless to say, it excels at styles that don't incorporate excessive amounts of gain, especially blues and jazz. I only wish it was available with a chrome cover because nickel covered humbuckers might look out of place in guitars with chrome hardware.
