BG Pups Handwound Pickups and Bryan Gunsher, a Northern California maker of handmade-hand wound electric guitar pickups, announced the addition of the BG Bucker Clear Top and MM90"Mean Green" to their lineup.
It is said to have “great vintage tones with a touch less highs in the bridge than the stock BG Buckers and the neck has touch more highs.” The bridge has a nice crunchy bite to it, the company says. The neck is described as “buttery while still retaining highs.”

The MM90"Mean Green" is a direct replacement pickup for the new Gibson '59 Melody Maker Reissue. This pickup also uses the same bobbin as the BG Bucker Clear Top but uses 2 C8 magnets, gold pole screws and wound with BG Pup’s new “Mean Green” wire.
This wire is a heavy build and supposedly creates a nice grindy type of tone which matches great with the new '59 Melody Maker Re-issues.
