Our version of the classic PAF-type pickup. Wound with the right balance of highs, mids and bass response using period correct materials, including wire type, magnet, and spacing.

The neck is wound to just under 8k to provide the quintessential 50s tone. The Alnico II magnet ensures the right response and lasting vintage sustain for your instrument.

We use period correct plain enamel wire, just like Gibson used during this period and do not compromise on any detail to achieve 50s period-correct construction, quality, and tone.

Available in neck or bridge position.
Please Note: Covered pickups are extra and optional.

1957 Humbucker Set

Great sounding pickups. I like these better than the Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickups I have in another guitar. I put these in a 335-type guitar and they work perfectly in a semi-hollow body guitar. Will definitely return to Planet Tone for my next build.

I put three of these in a 3 pickup Les Paul Custom. The guys here knew that so they wound the pickups accordingly, a very nice touch, increasing in output from neck to bridge. Very clear, clean, articulate, warm and they respond very nice to the pedals I have in my boards. Really brought the guitar to life. All positions sound great. I was tired of all the typical pickups out there so I thought I'd give these cats a chance..man, I'm glad I did. I don't think I could find better pickups, for my personal tastes anywhere, at any price. Cheers mates!

I recently installed these 57's in my LP, they are the best LP pickups I have had in any of my LP's, I prefer less output humbuckers but these still have enough to grunt, growl and grind but gives more flexibility through the volume knob to clean it up a little more as well, they sound sweet and the combo of the two is very good indeed. Jose is a pleasure to work with, he's honest and makes great pickups, he's busy and he should be with his business practices, insanely good prices compared to to dollar quality of these high quality pickups. I have 3 sets and looking to buy another soon.
