GIBSON IM57C-NH Burstbucker Type 3 Nickel Cover

The Gibson Burstbucker Type 3 Replacement Pickup, Nickel features historically "unmatched" bobbin windings and Alnico II magnets to capture the subtle variations of the original classic humbucker tone.

The BurstBucker Type 3 of pickups represents Gibson’s drive to recapture the magic of the original "Patent Applied For" humbuckers. On the shop floor of the original Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the earliest Gibson "Patent Applied For" humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines, resulting in pickups with varying degrees of output and tone.

BurstBucker Type 3 pickups produce an airy, full tone, and when overdriven they achieve a magical distortion with the slightly enhanced highs that made the originals famous. BurstBucker Type 3 is overwound and hot, which is typically ideal for the bridge position. None of the BurstBuckers are wax potted, and all feature vintage braided two-conductor wiring.
