In 1955, Gibson created the famed PAF humbucker pickup that changed the guitar world!

All Gibson pickups are made in the USA using premium materials for the best sound possible. From magnetizing their own magnets to using solid nickel base plates to maple spacers which reduce unwanted vibrations, Gibson makes premiere pickups for any style of music.
