Product Description

Authentic right down to the original “Patent Applied For” decal on the threaded nickel baseplate. Every detail is carefully matched, the enamel coated wire, maple spacers, the smooth tone of Gibson's alnico magnets right down to the coil bobbins which are made from the original molds. The outstanding tone of this pickup is true vintage- warm, with sweet highs and a rich, full low end response. Suitable for bridge or neck position. Two conductor wiring.

Combined with an Emerson Wiring Kit, these pickups scream! (I also purchased the Gibson Classic 57 Plus for the bridge)

What a great sounding pickup, just like the old PAF'S
What is your opinion of this product?
I installed it in my 93 Gibson SG Custom Shop in the neck position and it sounds amazing. Also going to buy a classic plus for the bridge. Can't go wrong with these bad boys.

Best Humbucker in the Business
Your general opinion of this product.
the Gibson 57 Classic pickup is, in every consideration, the highest quality humbucker pickup around. the balance of power and tonality is second to none. even rolling back the volume knob doesn't diminish its flavor.

All Les Pauls should have '57 Classics
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Excellent quality.

FEATURES:
Far sweeter tone than a 498T or 490R. Doesn't generate annoying microphonic feedback; gives that nice harmonic feedback when used with a Les Paul plugged into a Marshall 50-watt JCM800 head.

EASE OF USE:
Not difficult to install. Just a shielded wire. Solder the shield to the volume pot case and solder the lead wire to the volume pot terminal. That's it. Not a 4-wire pickup for use on guitars with coil splitting switches.

VALUE:
Great value. Makes your $300 SG copy sound like a $2,000 guitar.

SOUND:
I've got 57 Classics installed on two Gibson LP 59 flametop reissues, a Gibson LP Studio, an Ibanez "lawsuit" Rocket Roll Flying V and a '77 Ibanez Les Paul copy. Very sweet tone even at low volumes, and still roars at high volume.

STYLE:
rock, bossa nova

MUSIC EXPERIENCE:
guitar player 35 years, play in bands, home recording
