The Elite Series Humbucker by Planet Tone. A humbucker for the next generation of tone lovers! Designed to offer warmth, growl and a super luscious top end. The pickup is extremely dynamic with a tonal response that is articulate and defining. It is for the player who loves vintage warmth but wants a modern response and articulation from their pickup.

Unlike most pickups and pickup manufacturers, we've allowed you to customize your humbucker to provide exactly the tone you wish. Choose the amount of drive vs. sustain by varying the strength of your magnet. Choose your mid-range response by varying the output. Higher output means more mid-range response. This allows you to cater your tone, especially at the bridge. Choose how much treble or top end response your humbucker offers by varying the design from a single pole piece design to double pole pieces. Each option slightly adjusts the tone of your pickup giving you the tonal response from your guitar that you desire.

Choose your Magnet:

    • Alnico II (80% Sustain / 20% Drive)
    • Alnico III (60% Sustain / 40% Drive)
    • Alnico IV (40% Sustain / 60% Drive)
    • Alnico V (20% Sustain / 80% Drive)
    • Alnico VIII (100% Drive - Heavy Mids)
Choose your Output (6K - 20k):
    • Please note lower outputs tend to have more signal room and treble response with a punchy feel
    • Higher outputs tend to have a higher gain and push amps more. They also tend to have more midrange response with a softer or less than punchy response on the low end
    •  Ideal Neck Outputs are around 8.0 for traditional tone and clarity
Choose your Pole Piece configuration:
    • Single Pole Pieces - Traditional look and top end (treble) response
    • Double Pole Pieces - Double screw look at bobbins. Max top end (treble) response; ideal for hotter pickups
    • Natural Enamel Wire
    • Alnico II, III, IV, V, or VIII magnets
    • All mounting hardware included
    • Neck or Bridge
    • Single or Double Pole Piece options available
    • Wax Potted

Custom Pickup

Once the pickup was installed.....it was awesome!!! It has that growl I was looking for, but still clear. I will buy more for my other guitars.

Absolute Monster of a Pickup

I asked for an Alnico V bridge pickup coming in at a hot 15.75k with coil split for various pickup flavor and Planet Tone delivered this pickup has such Clarity and definition while under high gain, likewise this pickup sounds amazing as well under low gain and clean settings. I’ve used this pickup in just about every genre from Worship, blues, classic rock, metal, and fusion, even cut through in a good way playing with an Orchestra! I highly recommend Planet Tone Pickups not only for their pickup but also for their awesome Customer Service!

I used an A8 magnet with 17.5 on the output, traditional pole piece screws, and slug bobbins with 52mm spacing. Wow! what a winning combination! Thanks planet tone! This pickup is just as described. Warmth, growl, super luscious top end, but with my custom specs, tons of raw power. Even with the pickup lowered and leveled to my pickguard, every note still rings out with a strong lasting sustain. I highly recommend this pickup combination for anyone who thirsts for power as well as anything else this awesome company has to offer!!!
