Going to be picking up my 2012 Gibson Les Paul Special Pro soon. These were apparently a GC only model. It is listed as having the "new" HB3 humbucker in the bridge.

Didn't know if anyone had any info on these? Don't seem to ever see them on any Gibson pickup lists or anything. Was just trying to get an idea of what they compare to?

Honestly, Tom, never heard of these before you started this topic. Sorry, no more clues here than you already mentioned or quoted here. [confused]

Now that I've played this for a bit, I'm pretty impressed with it.

I'd really love to know more about it to know what the closest current production pick up is.

Wish Gibson would chime in.

Great "classic rock" kind of sound with awesome string definition.
