The Gibson Patent Applied For humbucker pickups from the 1950s are considered by many musicians to be the “holy grail” of vintage electric guitar pickups. Among them, the unique set that was installed in the legendary “Greeny” Les Paul are some of the most famous. The new Greenybucker set is instantly recognizable from a sonic perspective and was developed with input from Greeny’s current owner, Kirk Hammett, and with specifications taken from the actual Patent Applied For humbucker pickups on that world-renowned guitar, including asymmetrical coil windings and unpolished Alnico 2 magnets.
The hard-rocking pickups of the 80s return with the Gibson Pickup Shop Kramer Collection. Paying tribute to the guitars that defined a new generation and style of counter-cultural players oblivious to the rules, these pickups are Made to Rock Hard.
Inspired by the sound of the hard rock and metal bands of the 1980s, the Kramer Eruption is a high-output humbucker pickup with all of the Made to Rock Hard tone an attitude you expect from Kramer. They feature Alnico 5 magnets, 4 wire leads coil splitting, and short leg baseplates to ensure easy direct replacement for most humbucker-routed guitars.
