best pickup ever

Gibson Classic 57 PlusPublished on 11/28/12 at 19:45
The Gibson Classic 57+ has just the right abount of output to push your wood and allow articulation. My favorite combonation is 57+ bridge and 57 neck. I have this set up in a LP Standard 2001---best guitar made in years but that is another review. The 57 will easily push my JCM800, Soldano Avenger, CAE OD100 or Bogner Shiva anniversary into overdrive. At the same time fully strummed chords maintain note articulation. The pickup is well rounded not too dark or too bright. The pluss in the bridge gives the player a tad more power. These pickups allow the guitar to sound unique to the guitars make and model. You can't go wrong with the classic 57. I also have the regular 57 set in a...…

You can't go wrong with the classic 57. I also have the regular 57 set in a Gibson 335 and SG 61 reissue. The pups work well in both gutiars. I would indeed make the same choice in fact I may put them in the bridge positon of a strat one day.

A wonderful take on the P.A.F!

Gibson Classic 57 PlusPublished on 04/29/11 at 18:36
I have one of these pickups stock in the bridge position of my Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus, and from day one I've been pleasantly surprised by how good it is. I assumed that when I bought the guitar that I would need to eventually swap out the pickups to ones that were higher output. My primary plan when I bought the guitar itself was to use it for classic and hard rock tones, and I figured that I would need pickups with a little more kick. I had tried Les Pauls with Burstbucker Pro pickups and really liked those for hard rock, so I figured the '57 Classic/Classic Plus set would simply be too low output for what I wanted to do, probably more suited to blues or jazz.

I have one of these pickups stock in the bridge position of my Gibson Les Paul Traditional Plus, and from day one I've been pleasantly surprised by how good it is. I assumed that when I bought the guitar that I would need to eventually swap out the pickups to ones that were higher output. My primary plan when I bought the guitar itself was to use it for classic and hard rock tones, and I figured that I would need pickups with a little more kick. I had tried Les Pauls with Burstbucker Pro pickups and really liked those for hard rock, so I figured the '57 Classic/Classic Plus set would simply be too low output for what I wanted to do, probably more suited to blues or jazz. However, from day one of actually owning and using the guitar with these pickups, I've been suitably impressed. They are both lower output when compared to say, a Duncan JB or a Suhr Doug Aldrich, but that doesn't mean that they can't rock.

The Plus in particular has impressed me quite a bit with its general versatility. At its core, I would liken it to a P.A.F pickup, but on steroids. It's a clean enough pickup to work really well for tones where gain is not a player in the sound (IE: country or certain blues tones). The Classic Plus is great for country esque tones that sound surprising for a full (IE: non coil split) humbucker. The drive tones though are definitely my favourite. It can do classic tones with a mid gain sound very well, and considering its output level, that is what you would think would be its niche. However in addition to this there is a really nice top end punch that is perfect for seventies/eighties hard rock tones. It's the type of pickup where you run it harder and use your pick attack and gain from the amp or a pedal to get your saturation as opposed to coming from the pickup itself.

My only problem with the pickup is that it's 2 conductor wired. I want a Jimmy Page coil splitting/phase setup for the guitar at some point, and with these pickups I am unable to do this. That may mean I do finally swap them up, but as it stands right now I've had this bridge pickup in the guitar for 13 months and for now, it is staying.

Cool

I use since February 2011 on an Ibanez AFS95, a typed model archtop jazz in bridge position and 57 position vintage neck a Classic.

He particularly improved the sound of the guitar, even if the bridge position is not the one I use most often. When the guitar is in an intermediate position the sound is very good.

It is an expensive hair I would say, but it is good material.

Same as the opinion below ...

I ordered on Thomann version zebra, after mounting my Les Paul had the same sound a jigsaw ... The 500T I retired, which is, however, a ceramic, sounds much less steep, go figure ...

Moreover, the level of C57 + exit seemed really high for a typical micro "vintagepluspechu" ... The worst part is that after a while I typed cuts his ...

Anyway, I already know that the term quality is unknown at Gibson for several years but I did not think it affected the microphones ...

They will think to contact them to discuss the Korean factory specifications ...

Yeah, I could not exchange it against another microphone, C57 + flipped? I thought about it but honestly I'm freaking out a little ... A simple C57? I'm afraid I have a slight lack of potato ...

Result: I did not put the 500T's on my Les Paul for 2 years so I end up with a mono-Paulesquire The neck pickup. Class ...

To summarize I do not know if I'll take a mic Gibson pickups and shops it makes me sweat because I know quedalle and that is mostly pure snobbery, paid a high price ...

If someone can enlighten me in passing ...

Thank you!
