    Awesome Pickups

    Totally transformed my Epiphone 335 Dot. Warm rich sound.

    Love it

    In combination with the '57 Classic neck pickup, my Les Paul now gives me just the sound I was hoping for.

    Accept No Substitiute

    I knew what this was when I bought it: simply an EXTREMEMLY accurate reproduction of a vintage Gibson Humbucking pickup.
    Vintage Gibson pickups were scatter wound, meaning often times a
    pickup had a few more winds than "normal". This made the pickup a little hotter. Not blazing hot, but smoldering. This pickup in the bridge position is ALMOST too hot. Frankly, I'm a single coil kinda guy. However I know Gibson pickups from the late 1950's are the most sought after pickups in the world. The Gibson Classic 57 Plus is not
    a homerun.....IT'S A GRAND SLAM !

    Gibson '57 Classic Plus Humbucker

    Installed in a 1989 Gibson 335 Studio with no f-holes.

    It's exactly what I expected, minus some bite. The non-Plus version is all butter and cream, this one has half a shot of Tabasco added.

    A full shot would make the combination perfect - regular '57 in the neck, Plus version in the bridge.

    But all in all they're really quite good, and as the name says, Classic.

    Classic + Nice, solid humbucker pickup

    Have this on two of my axes in bridge position. One I have just the 57 classic plain. Beautiful rich sound. Great tone, no hum or buzz. Sounds very rich clean and quite full in tube or pedal distortion. Same as a 57 Classic plus a little more there there. No surprises. solid Gibson tone..
