The introduction of the Mini-Humbucker in the late-1960s served a growing need - the demand for a P-90-sized pickup with no hum. Gibson's world-class engineers set about creating a smaller, more compact humbucker to fit into the slot of a P-90. With its smaller size, narrow magnetic field, and unique design combination, the Mini-Humbucker produces a bright and focused output while still retaining Gibson's famous humbucker performance.
The Mini-Humbucker was first made available in several Gibson-made Epiphone models of the late 1960s and the Les Paul Deluxe in 1969. This vintage replica of the original Mini-Humbucker uses a bar Alnico 2 magnet.
The Gibson Mini-Humbucker is authentic in every detail, from its cream-colored plastic mounting and coated enamel-like wire to its maple spacers and vintage braided lead wire. The Mini-Humbucker is available for the bridge or neck position, is equipped with braided, two-conductor wiring, and is fully wax potted to eliminate microphonic feedback. The tone is unmistakable Gibson.
