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.

The BG Bucker Clear Top set is wound like a stock set of BG Buckers but they are wound on 2 NOS clear T-Top bobbins from the 70s and 80s. It also uses 2 A4 magnets specifically tuned for this set.

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.”

Clips and info for this pickup can be found at: www.bg-pups.com/hb.htmlhttp://www.bg-pups.com/hb.html.

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.
