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.

Features:

  • Plain enamel wire
  • Alnico II magnets
  • All mounting hardware included
  • Neck Output Approx 7.9K
  • Bridge Output Approx 8.1K
  • Wax Potted

Amazing tone.

I bought the 57 humbuckers and they really capture the classic PAF sound. Quality stuff. Jose was very helpful with questions that I had. I look forward to buying more pickups from planet tone in the future.

Sounds great!

Have the 57 in the bridge so I ordered the 57 neck to go with it. Great balance between the 2 pickups. I love the clarity they have. Definately happy!

Glorious '57

Wonderful. Way to install and adjust, and the tone is killer.
