The BurstBucker Series delivers all the vintage vibe of the legendary "patent applied for" (PAF) humbuckers, best known from the 1959 Les Paul Standard. All three BurstBuckers have unpolished magnets and non-potted coils. There was tremendous variation among those early hand-wound humbucking pickups. Employees would wind the bobbins "until they were full." This was typically about 5,000 turns. The BurstBucker 1 is slightly underwound, with medium vintage output and it works well in both neck and bridge positions. This one has a nickel plated pickup cover.
