mooseherman's review"The classic Les Paul pickup"

Gibson Burstbucker 2
These are certainly a great pickup, for many reasons. The most obvious reason, which I'll discuss first, is the Gibson Les Paul. These are the first humbuckers that came with the Les Pauls in the late 50s, which were introduced to help with the massive amounts of noise that came with single-coil pickups, at least among rock guitarists who were trying to increase the gain on their amps without too much feedback. Technically, the first burstbuckers were earlier, but they were redesigned for improvement shortly afterward, hence this model.
These pickups are some of the more versatile pickups I've ever played. The great thing about them is that they sound awesome in many different guitars. I really like the sound that they can produce with the Les Paul (who doesn't?) but I also have a great appreciation for what they can do with a hollow-body. Before these guys came around, hollow-bodies could not handle any type of distortion, as they'd feed back tremendously. That changed with these guys, and now hollow-bodied guitars are used in rock music all the time (everyone from Robert Fripp to Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age).
I've even seen them used in Telecasters and Stratocasters to great effect (though I prefer them in the Teles). I think that it's interesting that guitars so often identified with single-coils can still sound great with humbuckers in them. That's testament to how solid these pickups are. If you are looking to replace your pickups and are sure you want humbuckers, make sure you check these out.

These Gibson pickups have a particular color, we love it or hate it. Some will find the sound a little claustrophobic or "duck" other very warm and woody. This is pretty typical, to give an idea is to have enough roots sounds of Gibson, those that can look with even a Lespaul ES335, so rather jazz, blues and early rock'n'roll, really creamy and rich in low-medium.

Warning output level is rather high, not so much vintage as can be the color of the sound.

Connection level there is the hot spot and the ground, so no possibility to split.

I find it great if you want the type BB King while wanting a slightly higher gain, if you want to hard-rock go your way, you'll find dark and mushy ...

Gibson Burstbucker 2
I try all the microphones for 25 years, I've heard a lot and if there is a point where I block it is on gibsons pickups ......
I have found two that I love, and their p90 minihumbucker by double against them I hang it, let alone this "thing" looks like a DiMarzio distortion less powerful, one of the worst that micro I ssay, wondering if he had no worries this microphone, the sound is not small scale, poor, virtually impossible to have a clear, turning down the volume, there's nobody ... .
main musicality missing the point, not live here, compared to a tv jones for example (model gibbons) pfffffffff is flat broke.
I can not love "sausages serve" gibbi.
after when you see the incredible number (if not all) of guitarist playing on paul but changing the pickups ..... y-has perhaps a reason.

Gibson Burstbucker 2
Micro Alnico II by Gibson, I installed a Gibson Les Paul Trad, neck position, small feature I reversed the polarity of the microphone, Wholesale I played a bit on the Joe Perry Boneyard or Peter Green, already removing the microphone, it is not wax potted no wax on the horizon, after the sound is a remake of the Classic 57 mode modern with a little more middle, it is brighter and less dark, so he seems more open, it is a good supplement for those looking for a side Vintage / Modern, otherwise reverse mode coupled to a Burtbucker 3 is a pure killing ...
